WELCOME TO YOUR DREAM HOME …

MEET YOUR NEW NEIGHBOURS …

AND PREPARE FOR THE NIGHTMARE TO BEGIN …

Salma Khatun is extremely hopeful about Hampton, the safe district to which she, her husband and their son have just moved.

But soon Salma sees her neighbour throw a ball at the anti-racist banner her son put in their front garden. She doesn’t complain because she wants her family to fit in. But then worse things start to happen – things Salma can’t ignore. A battle begins and quickly turns into a deadly nightmare.

A gripping thriller about nightmare neighbours, Those People Next Door explores the loss of innocence and how far we’re prepared to go to defend ourselves and the people we love.
