From writer Jimmy McGovern, the story of Anthony Walker, a black teenager murdered in a racist attack in Merseyside in 2005, and how his life could have been.

In July 2005, black teenager Anthony Walker was murdered by two white men in an unprovoked racist attack in a Liverpool park. He was just 18 years old.

This film tells the story of how this talented young man’s life might have turned out. Written by Bafta-winning screenwriter Jimmy McGovern, Anthony’s imagined life is told in reverse chronology as we see him realise his dreams and enjoy the life he had a right to live, before fate - and hate - take it all away.
