Some Dogs Bite is a top class independent film following three brothers who avoid the care system in Britain following the death of their mother. Covering the UK by rail, the boys visit the natural beauty spots of Wales and Scotland as well as some of the worst council estates in Britain.
H, Casey and Severino get aid from unexpected corners and hindrance from those who would be expected to help. H is the brooding eldest bearing the heavy responsibility of parenting with a silent sense of fatalism, whilst his hopeful brother plays with the baby and looks to the future.
A stellar performance by a junior cast make this engrossing tale come alive with a complicated mixture of love, loyalty and law-breaking.
Some Dogs Bite will air on BBC3 on Wednesday 10th November 2010 at 9pm in the UK only.
