A series of films about our lives - now
A mechanical drug enslaves teenagers just as surely as junkies are hooked on heroin or cocaine. It's the fruit machine.
This is the story of three young gamblers who caught the bug - and the harrowing consequences they, and their families, have suffered. Adrian is 17, from a respectable family in Somerset. He's been machine-addicted since he was 9, stealing to satisfy his craving. Now he's in custody, awaiting trial.
His parents can't accept that he's a criminal.
The outcome is a shock to them all ...
Julian, a successful young finance broker, spends hours feeding his salary into a machine. He's been driven to the edge of destruction by his addiction.
Jon, from Portsmouth, says fruit machines led him into a spiral of debt and stealing. In despair, he attempted a rare, terrible crime ...
