fractured  is a dystopian future where children think they're safe but know they aren't.

Adam J A  Cass's script about the named and the unnamed is furious about living in a country and world where children can't feel safe and are dying for the sake of political wins, fear and greed.

It's relevant and dark (and the bunker design uses the space brilliantly) but the direction, although equally passionate, feels forced and doesn't let the script speak for itself or give the audience the chance to see the truth before it’s told to them. Subtle can be stronger than intense.
