Jane Gull’s powerful 2016 drama debuts on Sky Premiere this week, starring the talents of Steve Brandon, Shana Swash and Will Rastall.
The film begins with family bereavement for the fiercely independent, young Luke – who suffers with Down syndrome – is forced into living in an entirely foreign, new environment: a care home. After escaping the confines of his carers, Luke finds himself exploring the local countryside, devoid of purpose and lacking in both world-experience and confidence until he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships blossom and secrets of cataclysmic consequences are unearthed, Luke finds his wild new friendship edging him close to disaster.
My Feral Heart – Wednesday 7:25 pm on Sky Premiere.
