Synopsis

Based on the famous novel by Barry Hines, Kes: A Kestrel for a Knave, the stunning yet bleak film version centres around Billy Casper - a young lad who seems to have nothing going for him. He's picked on by his teachers and classmates, he's tormented by his older brother, and he's ignored by his mother. But then, all alone in the world, Billy finds a kestrel hawk - and manages to befriend and tame it.
