Set in post WWII Britain, 10 year old Lewis witnesses the death of his beloved mother Elizabeth (Hattie Morahan) and never fully recovers. His father (Greg Wise) is a difficult, withdrawn man and as a consequence Lewis begins to self-harm to express his grief. As he leads a destructive life and deemed a society outcast, Lewis encounters a glimmer of hope – in the shape of a young woman – but can he overcome his demons and face a reality so long buried?
