An urban community held together by drug deals, sexual favours and controlling violence is awakened when Roadrunner, an errand boy for local gang lord, Mr Kava, quite literally stumbles across a strange young feral child. It soon turns out that the child appears to be some sort of oracle- able to tell the future and fulfil people's innermost dreams. Karva's step-son Othello uses him to win bets, but soon everyone wants a piece of the action and father is pitted against son, friend against friend, as greed and lust for power spiral out of control. A photographer and publisher, Rankin's intimate portraits, distinctive fashion, commercial work, and groundbreaking art projects have marked him out as one of the world's leading image-makers. Along with Chris Cottam, Rankin has now directed a powerful and daring debut feature, The Lives Of The Saints.
