Finally free from adult supervision, Leon begins to rail against the injustice of his reality as his dreams become more and more unattainable and distant. Oppressed at home and hunted on the streets by local gangs, Leon’s existence is suffocating, and all too real. When he meets Twiggy, a beautiful blond girl living in a local squat something stirs inside of him. As she introduces him to her world, the weight of his past lifts. He is in love for the first time and for a moment escapes the reality of his unrelenting existence. But naïve to the affluent world supporting Twiggy’s hedonistic lifestyle, Leon is unprepared when Twiggy no longer wants him around. Leon withdraws, allowing his raw and unhampered emotions to take over in the blind fight against his unjust existence with terrifying and brutal consequences. @obeyfilm

Now, some 78-years on from the Battle of Britain, the long-awaited release of 303 Squadron coincides poignantly with the centenary of the RAF, Polish Air Force, Polish Civil Aviation and the reclaiming of Poland’s Independence (11th November) which also marks Remembrance Sunday. With guidance and advice during a private meeting with HRH Michael of Kent, who was also a consultant on Dunkirk, 303 SQUADRON is considered to be an important film.
