Storyline

RICHARD, 15 with learning difficulties, longs to put down roots but his restless and destructive brother, POLLY, needs to keep moving. When the land they live on is bought by a new landowner, and the electricity supply to their caravan is cut, their already precarious living conditions get even worse. Then a chance meeting with the new landowner's daughter, 17 year old ANNABEL (Yasmin Paige), leaves RICHARD besotted; whilst POLLY befriends the guys who run a seedy traveling fair. Richards optimistic view on life becomes increasingly difficult to maintain as Polly's abusive behavior worsens, family secrets are revealed, and he comes to know POLLY is RICHARD'S father. His first true friend in ANNABEL. For better or worse, Richards life is about to change forever.

British drama at its best

Chicken. A low budget British drama about a guy with learning difficulties and his relationship with his apparently brutish brother. The first half was slow but beautifully shot. The second half was devastating. Not going to give anything away but watch if you can. 8 out of ten
