Set during the riots that rocked London in the summer of 2011, writer-director Jamie Jones' feature debut Obey tells the story of an East London teen (Marcus Rutherford) who finds a temporary escape from his tough life when he meets an enigmatic young squatter (Sophie Kennedy Clark).

Obey will have its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on 22nd April 2018. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

The official synopsis reads:

Finally free from adult supervision, Leon begins to rail against the injustice of his reality as his dreams become more and more unattainable and distant. Oppressed at home and hunted on the streets by local gangs, Leon’s existence is suffocating, and all too real. When he meets Twiggy, a beautiful blond girl living in a local squat something stirs inside of him. As she introduces him to her world, the weight of his past lifts. He is in love for the first time and for a moment escapes the reality of his unrelenting existence. But naïve to the affluent world supporting Twiggy’s hedonistic lifestyle, Leon is unprepared when Twiggy no longer wants him around. Leon withdraws, allowing his raw and unhampered emotions to take over in the blind fight against his unjust existence with terrifying and brutal consequences.
