A film by Rebecca Johnson
HONEYTRAP is a tragic teen romance, set in Brixton and inspired by true events. It tells the story of 15-year-old Layla, who sets up the boy in love with her to be killed. The film explores the jigsaw of elements which allow gang culture to flourish, but it's also a story on a mythic scale: set in a world with its own kings and queens, a world where obsession and jealousies loom larger than life and where status is survival itself.
