Plastic surgery: Mary and Leo

Duration: 03:17 minutes

In his spare time in 1965 fourteen-year-old Leo was working for a clock maker in Enniskillen when an accident left him with burns to his face and hands. Now talking for the first time to his elder sister Mary about the seconds that changed his life, he remembers painstakingly building a plastic construction kit, that became a symbol for his mother that her son would make a full recovery.
