Synopsis

Based on a true story. 11 year old Urban’s been running away from care since he was five, (six care home and eight foster homes in six years). He’s Britain’s most runaway child... 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, addict mum, Greta. So when she meets Chop, the first decent bloke they’ve ever known, Urban feels hope for the first time.
For Chop, the once idealistic ex-social worker, it’s a chance of redemption. He takes the broken family in, helps Greta, 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 strog, leaving Urban to cope with the fallout the only way he knows how…
