At sixteen, Aaliyah has her whole life ahead of her. Her family is supportive, her grades are decent, and Jasmine, her friend and mentor, always offers advice when needed. However, Aaliyah finds herself getting closer to Terry, an older guy who has charmed her into a relationship. Blinded by attraction, Aaliyah has somehow allowed herself to get sucked into doing jobs for Terry and his so-called friends: Budge, Nizzy and J Stax. Terry has started ranking. In return, he gets new threads, money, drugs and alcohol. Will Aaliyah leave Terry? Or will she be drawn into the gang? Find out what happens in this new interactive movie, made by the young people of Lewisham.
