One of the most difficult ethical questions society faces is this: what do we do with children who have killed? Are they - as the tabloid newspapers believe - inherently evil? Or should they be allowed to find their way back towards a normal life? In this thoughtful drama, Jack Burridge is the new name given to the young man who was tried for murder as 'Boy A'. As he tries to start again, he knows that if his true identity is ever exposed he will be chased through the streets by those who can never forgive.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
