Swansea Love Story
Directed by Andy Capper and Leo Lee
6 part film focusing on the lives of a gang of young addicts caught up in South Wales largely ignored heroin epidemic.
"Heartwarming, engaging and darkly amusing. The must-see British film of the year." - The Guardian
In 2009, Swansea drug agencies reported a 180 percent rise in heroin use, and it’s visible on the city’s streets. Early one morning we meet a young, homeless couple named Amy and Cornelius in a city centre alley. As heroin-addicted alcoholics, they’re smack in the middle of two of South Wales’s most ever-present epidemics.
