    Rufus' debut feature tells the story of Skunk Cunningham, an eleven year old girl living in North London with her older brother Jed (Milner), their father Archie (Roth) and au pair Katya. She witnesses a violent attack which brings chaos to Skunk’s life. Her home, her neighbourhood, her school all become treacherous environments where the certainties of childhood give way, and a complex, broken world fills her future.

    Shot through with a vibrant energy and wit, Broken is an exploration of love in the many forms it arrives in: idealised, unrequited, unwanted, and ultimately, unconditional.
