My Feral Heart

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

'My Feral Heart' is an award-winning, understated character study bolstered by critically acclaimed performances, distinctive cinematography and a deeply evocative score. A warm-hearted yet hard-hitting drama about new beginnings, the power of unforeseen friendships, and the remarkable effect of one young man on the people he meets.
A sudden bereavement forces Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from Eve a feisty, streetwise carer, and Pete, a complex local lad dealing with his own demons. Luke’s search for solace leads to an encounter with a desperate young girl in need of help. While friendships bloom, long-buried secrets are revealed, and Luke verges dangerously close to disaster.
