Faith Dawson, Jessica McGough-Sheils and Filipa Lamb-Vieira portray three young people caught up in a gang-related incident, suffering injuries and needing medical help.  

This situation is one that many NHS staff find themselves in, treating victims who fear another attack and act out aggressively towards those trying to help. 

The film is set to be shown as part of a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course, run by LJMU’s Public Health Institute, for 60 NHS professionals and will be used as a teaching tool for safeguarding young people, in a clinical setting.
