A coming of age story about Harry, a charismatic 11-year-old boy who arrives at secondary school in suburban London unable to read or write.
With the help of Sophie, his extremely dedicated teacher, and the unfailing support of his father, he struggles to overcome the illiteracy ingrained across generations of his family.
Against the backdrop of a Britain riven with debates around class, identity and social mobility, the film follows Harry over two years as he fights not only to improve academically but also to believe in a better future for himself.
