Jerome Thomas faces up to a terrifying fate with poise and dignity, in Dumas Haddad's cinematic story of love and retribution.

The singer is prone on a beach and we soon realise his predicament - mortally wounded, tied by rope by his vengeful captors. A flashback then reveals his crime of a forbidden love affair, before a climax

This atmospheric piece for Bruises, with photography by Olan Collardy, is described by director Haddid as a "grindhouse Afro-Futurist Western", and there is a definitely an element of Tarantino in the portrayal of cruelty.

But it's also testiment to a remarkable British summer that this sun-kissed, widescreen piece that suggests the American Deep South, was actually shot in Margate, and its surroundings.
