Read reviews


“One of the most affecting programmes about care.... restrained, dignified and enormously touching. I’m haunted by the leftover scraps of the kid that remain inside the grown man.”


“Stark, by turns depressing but also up lifting. Poignant, candid and necessary.”

Time out

“The most powerful film on the failure of our social services since ‘Cathy Come Home’.
