Set on the fictional East London estate of Summerhouse, Top Boy is a crime drama that takes an unflinching look at the raw, dangerous world of drug dealing and the lives of those who live in the ends. It’s a look at the paradoxical aspiration and realities of those who are marginalised by society yet form a tight-knit community as they try to better their lives on the estate.
For Dushane and Sully, that’s about the relentless pursuit of building a drug empire to become Top Boy. But that puts a target on your back. Enemies can come from anywhere, loyalties are tested as trusted lieutenants can become snakes, and the unwritten rules of the road are always challenged. But these are the challenges you face as Top Boy. The question is: how long can you stay there?
