Plot Summary
Graham Holt (William Hurt) is a reclusive Welsh postal worker who lives with his terminally ill father. Aware that he'll soon be alone, Graham decides to adopt a son, but, because he's a single man, he's told he'll be offered only the most troubled children available. He soon begins a visitation period with a volatile young boy named James (Chris Cleary Miles) whose mother committed suicide and whose father (Keith Allen) is serving time in jail.
