Ticking time-bombs Luce and Charlene are 30-something binge-drinking soul mates. They clock in after heavy a night out on the tiles, popping caffeine pills and downing miniatures on the factory floor, boasting about last night’s sexual conquests. When you're living for today it's hard to think about tomorrow.

 

“Screwed is a savage, tender exploration of the emotional brutalisation of poverty.”
