Joe (David Oyelowo) is a teacher with a mission. He’s determined to save the black youngsters at his school from a life of gangs, crime and underachievement – whether they like it or not.

But when a seemingly minor incident rapidly escalates out of control and he loses his job, he turns against his own community. He quickly descends into madness and hits rock bottom, before realising he has a lot to learn about love, understanding and a different way of seeing his world.

Shoot The Messenger was screened to widespread acclaim at New York’s prestigious Tribeca Film Festival*. The 2006 Edinburgh International Film Festival* is also showing the drama.

Shoot The Messenger is a BBC Films production for BBC TWO. Written by Sharon Foster, produced by Anne Pivcevic and co-produced by Yvonne Isimeme Ibazebo. The director is Ngozi Onwurah (Body Beautiful; Coffee Coloured Children), and the executive producers are David Thompson and Hilary Salmon.
