Based on a true story, this harrowing film is no easy watch but its message of hope and redemption is a worthwhile one. Kevin Lewis was born to an unbalanced, abusive mother and neglectful, epileptic father; beaten and starved, he is failed by social services and returned to his parents to face more unmerited punishment. When he finally escapes them, he falls in with a criminal crowd, who nickname him The Kid - from there he spirals ever downward. How Kevin hit rock bottom and then became the successful writer he is today forms the rest of this absorbing tale.
