A teenaged street gang must work to protect their working-class South London neighborhood from an alien invasion on Guy Fawkes Night.

ABSTRACT
Pest, Dennis, Jerome, Biggz, and Moses, a rough-and-tumble street gang in the gritty South London neighborhood of Brixton, find their mugging of nurse and new community arrival Samantha Berrins interrupted on Guy Fawkes Night when a mysterious object falls from the sky and crashes into a parked car. Approaching the car to see if there is anything worth stealing from the decimated vehicle, Moses is attacked by a strange, unidentifiable creature, an incident that foreshadows the ultimate all-out alien invasion of Brixton that Moses's gang must somehow attempt to repel if they are to survive.
