The incredible real-life story of writer and artist Christy Brown. Born into a large, impoverished Irish family, Christy is paralysed from birth due to crippling cystic fibrosis and written off as a helpless infant, only able to make guttural sounds. But trapped within his damaged body is a brilliant mind, which finally finds expression thanks to his own determination and the drive of his indomitable mother, who never gives up on him.
