    • Synopsis
    • Life on a council estate in Brexit London - gentrification plans bring astronomic bill for homeowners and aggravate the community. In the eye of the storm Irina, a Bulgarian single mother, tries to breakthrough as an architect and refuses to live on benefits like most of her neighbours.
      She galvanizes the homeowners to appeal against bill with the Council but the English assure her that any attempt to fight the system is doomed. Irina’s family and people living on benefits clash over the ownership of a cat. А different side of British society is revealed to her and she realizes she is trapped in the walls of her property and metaphorically in her mind.
      She takes a drastic decision to change her life.
