Dirty God tells the story of Jade, a young mother from London who must pick up the shattered pieces of her life after she is the victim of an acid attack. Her face is reconstructed but her beauty is gone. She must rebuild herself. This is a portrait of a woman with incredible resilience. Jade is no passive victim and makes her own choices - both good and bad - and deals with the consequences. Newcomer Vicky Knight, who was badly burned as a child, is a genuine revelation in a powerful lead performance. Fresh from opening the Rotterdam International Film Festival this January.
