Set in an inferior London estate, told through rich, witty urban street slanguage, Estate Walls follows the story of Obi, a young writer who dreams of leaving his estate, but with bad boys Myles and Cain for best friends, there are bound to be setbacks.

As Myles and Cain plan another heist, Obi decides to opt out but his refusal to take part in their caper, and his growing love for a forbidden girl land him in a whole world of problems.
