Set in Liverpool at the start of the Liverpool 1981 uprisings, PURE PRESSURE tells the story of matriarch Lizzie Leung and her extended family during that turbulent period and beyond. A widow and a born survivor who has raised her family against the odds, Lizzie Leung has overcome tragedy and guilt that prepares her for the turmoil that follows. This compelling saga is interspersed with rich and brilliant vignettes of an ethnically diverse community under attack from within and outside its boundaries, captured with keen wit and a knowing eye. Brutal murders, violent confrontations, a heart-rending funeral, a lively christening, a forbidden love affair and political tensions acted out by characters that will stay long in your memory.
