Muló is a 15-minute supernatural drama set amongst Roma migrants living rough in a hidden makeshift camp on the harsh fringes of London. The men struggle to survive on meagre earnings as the chill of winter bites the air. Nicu, a young Romanian Roma labourer, is desperate to provide money for his family back home, but he has badly injured his foot and can’t work. Florin, the fixer, controls the work and extorts the men for the little they have. As tensions escalate, Nicu witnesses a murder. Trapped in a web of isolation and coercion, he is forced to make a grave decision...with haunting consequences.
