London-based sales company High Point Film has added Greg Hall's The Plague to its slate ahead of Cannes.

High Point has picked up world rights outside the UK, where distributor Wysiwyg Films has already released the project theatrically.

Mike Leigh called the film 'a remarkable breath of fresh air.' It is a low-budget feature about four friends in multi-ethnic London.

'It is exactly this sort of edgy, independent, innovative fare so many of our buyers are crying out for,' High Point's theatrical sales & marketing director, Elisar Cabrera. 'Greg Hall is definitely a name to watch out for.'
