Description

Taking as its inspiration Edmund Spenser's epic poem 'The Faerie Queene' but set in a disturbing and increasingly familiar urban underworld, SWEET GUM is the story of Eugene Burnside, a small time drugs dealer with both ambition and, surprisingly, integrity. His odyssey through this seedy world of snooker halls, lap dancing clubs and lock-ups, petty criminals, evil Essex men and embittered, ruthless coppers becomes an allegorical journey of remarkable power and perception: an exploration of the very nature of love.
