When the “culture war” rages, who gets to decide what’s true?

A tragicomic satire of political extremism and tribute to south-east London. A group of radical activists break into the high-rise offices of a bank on the evening of a new financial crisis. They unexpectedly find a team of bankers still there on the upper floors and take them hostage, but what now? Over the course of the evening Stockholm Syndrome seems to be setting in on both sides, but all this time one of the activists has been working alone on their true purpose, and they won’t be swayed.
