Original Channel4 Drama Starring: Olivia Colman (Peep Show),Lennie James (Line of Duty), Jaime Winstone (True Love), Katharina Schüttler (The Promise) and Katie Leung (Harry Potter)

Painting a compelling picture of modern-day life, Run is an original four-part drama coming soon to Channel4 that weaves together the stories of four seemingly unconnected people facing life-changing decisions in a world where every choice is a luxury.

Carol (Olivia Colman, Broadchurch, Twenty Twelve, The Accused, Rev, Tyrannosaur, Peep Show) is a tough single mother striving to keep her family together. When her teenage sons commit an act of random violence that ends in the death of a stranger, Carol faces the impossible choice of protecting her children or doing the right thing.

Ying (Katie Leung, Harry Potter, Wild Swans) is an illegal Chinese immigrant who sells pirated DVDs and stolen phones on the streets of London in the hope of making a life for herself in the UK. But first she must pay her debts to the Snakehead gang who smuggled her into Britain. When an immigration raid leaves her with no friends, no home and no money, an unlikely relationship begins which could offer Ying a way out.

Richard (Lennie James, Line of Duty, The Walking Dead) is a recovering heroin addict who spends every day struggling to stay clean. Only one thing spurs him on -- the possibility of re-establishing contact with his teenage daughter. Faced with the prospect of never seeing her again, Richard is torn between returning to the world of addiction or salvaging the only relationship that matters to him.

Kasia (Katharina Schüttler, The Promise) is a young Polish woman who came to London filled with hope. Years later she is still working as a cleaner, struggling to make ends meet and contending with a gambling addict for a boyfriend. Her world is rocked when she discovers that he has been killed in a vicious attack. Even worse, she unearths his secret relationship with another woman, Tara (Jaime Winstone, True Love), a night-club stripper. Left alone to clean up the mess, Kasia finds herself in grave danger.

Raw and uncompromising, but full of humanity and hope, Run is a powerful take on inner city life and how every choice we make has consequences for those around us.

Starring:Lennie James (Line of Duty), Jaime Winstone (True Love), Olivia Colman (Peep Show), Katharina Schüttler (The Promise) and Katie Leung (Harry Potter) Written by: Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and Marlon Smith Directed by: Charles Martin (Skins, Being Human, Wallander) and Jonathan Pearson Produced by: Chris Carey (Dirk Gently, This is Jinsy) Associate Producer: Adam Dolman Executive Producer: Jaimie D Cruz (Oscar-nominated for Exit Through the Gift Shop)

Four stories of urban tragedy and decay in London that could be watched and enjoyed out of sequence and individually as filmed, this is exciting and intriguing from the word go.

The first story is about a man who gets beaten to death on a council estate one night and the familial dilemma that ensues. The second is about an illegal Chinese immigrant who gets in trouble with her "owners". The third is about a second generation Caribbean man who is struggling with heroin addiction and losing his daughter and the final one is about a Polish immigrant woman who has to make some difficult choices to pay off a serious debt.

The stories are all subtly connected and reminds me in some ways of Jimmy McGovern's "The Accused", and also has the dark, poetic beauty of "Boys From The Blackstuff."

If social realism and clever storylines are your thing, this is one of the best choices you could make in contemporary TV/Film.

Very raw and emotional. Beautifully shot which gives real atmosphere and dips into a world where survival is all. Olivia Coleman is so
good it is difficult to forget her when the episode concludes.

(Was deliverd to my friend (who was working in) South Korea in super speedy time). She loves this kind of gitty drama; although maybe an episode of a comedy show afterwards would be a good idea?

True, RUN is a difficult watch at times. If you're more interested in watching fluffy bunnies and toffs quaffing Pimm's while punting on the lake, this probably isn't for you. If, however, you're tickled by superbly written (by virtual unknowns), beautifully acted (again, with a supporting cast of unknowns) British drama that is not afraid to show the underbelly of inner city existence, you might want to give RUN a shot.

Olivia Colman is predictably brilliant as Carol, the mother of two teenage boys (played by JJ and Billy Pamphillon) going off the rails, but, for me, it's Lennie James who steals the show, giving a performance of seething desperation that reeks of injustice and pathos.

Fans of Mike Leigh and Ken Loach will find much here to savour.

It is a fantastically told mini-series which centers around a violent act and the inter connected lives of the people it effected. Brilliantly told and a surprisingly accurate portrayal of London. British talent at its best- Channel Four has done it again Superb Drama.

This was absolutely superb. Olivia Coleman is at her absolute best as a single mother surviving on the margins of society. For me though, it was the equally brilliant German actress, Katharina Schuttler, who stole the show. I last saw her in 'The Promise'..
