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.

At age seven, he made a mark with chalk grasped between the toes of his left foot, the only limb on his body he could control. With this proof of intelligence, his schooling begins, and aided by his loving family, Christy learns to grapple with life's physical tasks and psychological pains. His courage and determination inspire a teacher, who lends support as he develops into a brilliant if cantankerous writer, poet, and painter.

After Guerin's death and the resultant investigations and arrests, drug crimes in Ireland dropped by fifty percent

When its legal owner suddenly decides to sell the land, a wealthy American (Tom Berenger) appears with plans to develop the area. To Bull, covering land with concrete is a mortal sin.
