Home by 8.30


In a tumultuous evening, a teenager is challenged by two contrasting realities that he is determined to never let crossover; his family life inside of his home and a violent encounter outside of his home.


A teenager tries his best to hide his involvement in a violent encounter, attempting to sneak back home after an evening out. However, his family is waiting for his arrival so that they can all eat together. While the night plays out, we follow the conflicted son of a family who is challenged by both the trauma of a recent altercation and his intentions to conceal it by any means from those who would care most, but also expect better.

Home by 8.30 was supported and executive produced by The BFI with the help of the National Lottery under 2019's BFI NETWORK.programme
