Grime tells the story of a man fighting his disillusioned way to happiness through greed, manipulation and violence. He lives with his dysfunctional family in a make-shift, haphazard shack constructed on top of a burger van. Their complicated mesh of co-dependency, lies and deceit is all that holds them together. Grime follows the trials and tribulations of a family intent on survival in harsh times. Part absurd, part constructed reality Grime is a modern day soap opera that aims to push the boundaries of possibility.
