Based on the life story of Christy Brown, who is crippled from birth with cerebral palsy, and grows up in a poor, Irish family. They take the decision to raise Christy at home rather than send him away, and when he finally picks up a piece of chalk with his left foot and writes a word on the floor at the age of ten, it's the start of an extraordinary career. Christy goes from someone no-one except his family had faith in, to an internationally renowned poet, writer and artist - as well as a funny, arrogant, whiskey-loving man.
Unsentimental but optimistic film about two wheelchair-bound characters who form a strong bond with each other and their devoted, no-nonsense carer.
