Is it choice or chance that makes a criminal?
From solicitor’s clerk to most wanted, Frank’s life is a rollercoaster of humour and coincidences. Before even being christened Frank ended up in the back of a police van, here began his days in criminality. Notting Hill in the 70s was a melting pot of Rude Boys, Punk, Rastas and Activists. In the middle was All Saints Road, a place of safety for young black boys. The only place you wouldn’t get bullied by the police without a bit of resistance. It wasn’t called the ‘Frontline’ for nothing.
Is Frank able to escape the long arm of the law and the revolving doors of the criminal justice system?
