Gundega, a Latvian former prison officer, is on the run from a drugs charge. Surviving on benefits in a makeshift camp in the woods in Harlow, UK, she befriends Melanie, a heroin user mourning the death of her Latvian boyfriend.


Their friendship provides each of them with something they crave: for Gundega, it is someone to care for. For Melanie, it is a genuine friend among all the ‘scumbags’. But trouble is never far away.


Drowning in a co-dependent, vicious downward spiral, they make a pact to travel to Latvia. But can it really offer them a dream escape from their giro-junkie street life, or will Mel’s old habits and Gundega’s past finally catch up with them?


Christopher Michael Tew’s exceptionally intimate debut feature documentary is a compelling, shocking, and deeply moving portrait of an unlikely friendship.
