Boy A

They took his name so he could have a future.
  • Sometimes I feel closer to you than to my own son...

This British drama takes a look at the attempted re-integration into society of a young man, who, as a child, committed murder. After his partner in crime died in jail, he was put up for parole. In order to give him a chance, he was given a new identity in a new home. He settled in well, even getting a girlfriend, before some inopportune publicity saw his cover blown. He goes on the run, seeking to once again start over, while his desperate parole officer does his best to track him down and salvage the situation.
