The War Zone

Fortnight 1999, Feature film, 1h39


For 15 year-old Tom, the war zone is at the heart of his seemingly happy middle-class family. When his family move from London to Devon, Tom finds his new life lonely and boring.

Isolated, confused and consumed by adolescent anger, Tom is determined to reveal the truth.
