A small gang of homophobic youths systematically bully a gay couple out of their home, while local authorities passively observe the unfolding events from the side-lines. The Courtyard is a chilling contemporary psychodrama about social prejudice and persecution.
A year ago Sergeant MAX CALLAGHAN (45) was dismissed from the the police force after taking responsibility for one of his men’s actions against rioters. Now, estranged from his embittered wife, HELEN (40s), and teenage daughter LINA (16), Max works as a security guard and sleeps on his sister’s couch. He spends his evenings drinking and playing darts with his ex-colleagues. Just when he’s beginning to believe his life has hit rock bottom, his daughter disappears. Max discovers that Lina went missing after a secret date with a Muslim teenager named WAZ (17).
