Ashley Walters has returned to Peckham in a new introspective short film released by Netflix. 

The So Solid Crew alum and Top Boy star tours the South London area with lifelong friends and family members and visits the landmarks which shaped his life and subsequent successful music and acting career.

We see the estates where Ashley spent youthful days with friends, the stage school where he developed the acting bug and the location of the pirate radio station where So Solid Crew got their start.

Much like Top Boy, this film draws out the regentrification that has occurred in areas like Peckham and how London continues to evolve and change.
