About the Film

Kayla, a young sixteen-year-old, faces the harsh London streets of gangland culture alone. Her mother already dead, her only protector and loving elder sister, Tanya is one day brutally murdered by violent, misogynist gang leader Trey. Swearing vengeance, Kayla joins a girl gang led by the violent, damaged Danielle who has her own reasons for helping Kayla seek retribution.

Director Nirpal Bhogal says:

"‘Sket’ is a derogatory term, defined in urban street culture as a woman with no regard or care for morals or dignity. This fast paced retribution thriller provides a hard hitting front row seat of UK girl gangs and the adrenaline-fuelled criminality they run on."
