Old enough to work, Jamie leaves the children's home to live with his paternal grandmother, but is soon conscripted into the RAF. Ironically, military service in Egypt brings a sense of freedom and friendship unimaginable in earlier years… Having refused to soft-pedal on life’s hardships, Douglas here achieves a very deep and genuine sense of release, compassion and redemption.
