'Flung' explores the moment when the worlds of a tormented young boy and an alienated old man collide with unforeseen consequences for them both. Sympathy shifts from one character to another as the boy's interaction with the old man becomes increasingly cruel. An emotional story that brings together two, not so very different lives.
