THE MASSES tells the story of three South London neighbours, a Muslim, a Christian and a Millwall fan, who ostensibly share little in common. As we gain a deeper insight into their lives and dissect themes of identity, belief and community, it becomes clear they have much more in common than first meets the eye. It is the story of South Bermondsey and how locality provides a shared context for the men, giving them an understanding of the world and their place in it. The observational footage brings to light existing tensions around family, worship, and the challenges of belonging to individual groups as well as a multicultural society.
