West 10 LDN BBC Drama, Ashley Madekwe

In one off BBC Drama West 10 LDN, made for BBC 3 and written by Noel Clarke, best friends Orin (Duane Henry) and Will (Andre Squire) find a kilo of hash near Greenside, the West London housing estate where they live. They decide to sell it on which may not be the wisest move of their lives.

Meanwhile Eighteen-year-old Elisha (Ashley Madekwe) causes trouble from the moment she arrives. When her belongings are stolen, Elisha will risk anything to get them back, because she has secrets to hide. Her search leads us into Greenside, as Elisha finds herself facing the estate’s bright lights and dark heart alike.
