Born with cerebral palsy, the 10th of 22 children of a Dublin bricklayer and his wife, Christy Brown was doomed to life as a vegetable by physicians in 1932.

His courage and determination inspire a teacher, who lends support as he develops into a brilliant if cantankerous writer, poet, and painter.

Doch klingende Münzen im Gitarrenkasten interessieren den kleinen August nicht. Was ihn antreibt, sind die Stimme seines Herzens und der sehnsüchtige Wunsch, irgendwo da draussen seine Eltern, die er nie kennen gelernt hat, auf sich aufmerksam zu machen ... (Quelle: DVD Cover)
