    • A savage gang of kids on a rough housing estate in South London kill an ape-like alien after it plummets from the heavens. Their victory is short lived when hundreds more aliens fall to earth, and these ones aren’t so easy to kill. As the aliens chase them around the block, picking them off one by one, they discover that street smarts and courage are what it takes to survive, and that these qualities can be found even in the most unlikely people.
