Expelled from one foster home after another, she dreams of nothing more than being reunited with her deeply unreliable mother. With its extraordinary central performance this is a deeply moving portrait of a vulnerable, horrendously challenging child and the problems she poses for even the most sympathetic of carers. This challenges conventional attitudes towards innocence, systems of support and, ultimately, the role of the welfare state.
