Synopsis

Boy A is a powerful coming-of-age story that looks at difficult questions concerning rehabilitation and redemption through the story of one young man. Jack, at the age of 24, has spent most of his young life in juvenile prisons for the murder of another child. Released from prison into a sometimes bewildering adult world, Jack is given a new name, new job, new home, a new life. But anonymity is both a blessing and a curse as Jack has to contend with not being able to tell the people he gets to know, and love, of his true past and the monstrous crime he committed as a minor.
