Netflix bosses promise a thrilling, London-based plotline which sees: “A rebellious young graffiti artist, who targets the homes of the wealthy elite, discover a shocking secret that leads him on a journey endangering himself and those closest to him.”
The script, co-penned and directed by Babak Anvari, is the first on the new UK film features slate at the streaming service.
This initiative, which will see I Came By filmed wholly in the UK, aims to develop “distinctive British productions to create bold new stories to entertain and excite a global audience.”
