A powerful ensemble drama that follows three contrasting and interwoven stories as they play out in one square mile of modern day London. A former rugby player, Max (Idris Elba, Prometheus, Beasts of No Nation), struggles to find a life off the field while fighting to save his marriage to former actress Emily (Gemma Arterton); Kingsley is a small time drug dealer desperately seeking a way off the street and while completing his community service for a misdemeanor, he meets Terence, a local thespian, who gives him the push he needs that leads him into a very different, creative world; George, a cab driver, and his wife Kathy dream of having kids, but a devastating road accident puts their hopes on hold, while also testing their otherwise strong marriage.
100 Streets is an urban crime film as well as a domestic drama that shows how anybody can make a wrong turn, but it is the journey that allows us to find the right path.
