Timmy and Marco remain best friends until Marco gets beaten up by one of Timmy’s school friends. This incident is the reason for their never ending rivalry, which we see in the movie and it also leads to a cycle of continuous gang wars.  

How Accurate Is the Blue Story?

The Blue Story movie is full of powerful and gritty realism, but it is not actually based on a true story. The movie is an adaptation of a 2014 Youtube series by Rapman of the same name which is said to be based on some true events. But the film depicts real-life gangs Peckham Boys and Ghetto Boys. 

Blue Story specifically highlights the knife crime in London. So, even if not based on true events, it definitely portrays true events in Rapman’s own words.
