1 Day

Labelled ‘Britain’s first hip hop musical’, 1 Day plunges you right into the heart of life on the streets as it follows 24 hours in the life of a young street hustler, Flash.

Flash wakes up to a phone call from Angel announcing that he’s being released from prison and wants the £500k he’d left with Flash for safekeeping. Short of the full amount and pushed for time, Flash is forced to strike a deal with Evil (Duncan) who more than lives up to his name.

1 Day follows Flash’s race against the clock as he’s pursued by a rival gang, the police, his three irate babymothers and his granny.


A Blast! Films production for Film4/Channel 4 and Screen West Midlands, 1 Day boasts original music performed by the cast. The film mixes hip hop and grime tracks with gospel, reggae and spirituals providing a realistic, vibrant soundtrack to the story.
