Young Autism sufferer Danny enjoys the serenity and solitude of camping. That’s all about to change when enraged teens Nicholas, Calvin and Julia find him, each with their own agenda for wanting to see Danny suffer.

“As a piece of visceral contemporary British cinema we recommend Cruel Summer almost unconditionally. But be warned; this is not for the faint-hearted. This is a film which will live with you and trouble you for some time.” – Paul Mount, Starburst Magazine
