In 2010 there were more than 1000 muggings a day and in this documentary film Brian Hill uncovers the human stories behind the statistics, told from the point of view of victims and of muggers.
The range of stories provide an unflinching look at the profound personal impact of mugging on people from all walks of life, with contributors’ testimony offering a vivid insight into the both the attacks and the full extent of the aftermath.
For example, Jane tells the shocking story of muggers pushing her off her bicycle to steal her bag, which led to her hitting her head and ending up in a coma. Luckily Jane is able to tell the tale but her story leaves no doubt that her ordeal has changed her life forever.
