Synopsis

Based on the true story of Britain’s most run away care home kid. 11 year old Urban has run away from care since he was 5 (6 care & 8 foster homes in 6 years). When he can’t find his mum he sleeps rough on the streets or in a shed with other runaways, The Shed Crew.

He’s never known a dad, just his mentally ill mum Greta, an addict. So when she meets Chop, the first decent bloke they’ve ever known, Urban feels hope for the first time.

For Chop, once an idealistic ex-social worker, it’s a chance for redemption. He takes the broken family in, helps Greta and teaches Urban and his brother Frank lessons in life. But the family’s new found happiness is all too fleeting as Greta’s propensity to self-destruct proves too strong, leaving Urban to cope with the fallout the only way he knows how…
