Synopsis

An eleven-year-old girl finds herself exposed to the inequities of life in this rite-of-passage drama directed by Rufus Norris. With her mother having left the family home, Skunk (Eloise Lawrence) now lives in suburbia with her kind-hearted father Archie (Tim Roth), her brother Jed (Bill Milner) and Polish au pair Kasia (Zana Marjanovic). In spite of being a diabetic, Skunk refuses to be hamstrung by the disease and always approaches life with a smile on her face. But that all changes when she witnesses a violent attack on her neighbours' simple-minded son Rick (Robert Emms) by fellow neighbour Mr. Oswald (Rory Kinnear), who believes, wrongly, that he has raped one of his daughters.
