Director Bio

Jamie Jones

Jamie started making films in 2000. He is the director of the BBC documentaries Fighters and Heroin to Heaven and was commissioned last year by VICE to make documentary 'Built on Steel'.  His short films, including The Nest, starring Vicky McClure,  5 Inches and Capital, have won numerous awards.  Obey is his first feature film.

Body

Obey is about Leon, a nineteen year old boy with an alcoholic mother who has grown up in and out of care. Finally free from adult supervision, Leon begins to rail against the injustice of his reality as his dreams become more and more unattainable and distant.  Leon’s existence is suffocating, and all too real. When he meets Twiggy, a beautiful blond girl living in a local squat something stirs inside of him. As she introduces him to her world, the weight of his past lifts. He is in love for the first time and for a moment escapes the reality of his unrelenting existence. But naïve to the affluent world supporting Twiggy’s hedonistic lifestyle, Leon is unprepared when Twiggy no longer wants him around. Leon withdraws allowing his raw and unhampered emotions to take over in the blind fight against his unjust existence with terrifying and brutal consequences.
