This is one boy's year of adventure, abuse, crippling poverty and encounters with the welfare officers, the nuns, the police - and The Moors Murderers.

This is Tommy’s story. It is 1963 and seven year old Tommy lives in the shadow of constant poverty, growing up at the heart of a large Irish family in the near-derelict community of Hulme in Manchester at the mercy of an alcoholic and abusive father and a negligent mother.

This is a life punctuated by petty theft and the struggle to snatch a little extra food and some childhood fun in the bargain.

This is the year where Tommy almost falls foul of the school welfare officers, the nuns, the police and then encounters Myra Hindley and Ian Brady and his world is changed forever.
