Plot Synopsis

A Kind of Hush

Brian Stirner made his directorial debut with this psychologically vague drama about child abuse and its consequences.

Six King’s Cross rent are bound by a terrible secret. They were hurt by adults as children and they become self-styled ‘vigilantes’ in order to take revenge on sexual molesters, but as confidence grows they target their former tormentors. Leading the motley rebel crew, Stu (Harley Smith) is the only one who has something of a normal life. He lives in a hotel where he is an apprentice and friends with the managers, Chef (Roy Hudd) and Beryl (Jeanie Drynan), however, he is drawn into the conflagration as well.
