This is a powerful family drama about this life changing decision in a boy so young – how do you decide what is best for your child as you try to support and protect him?
His mum, Vicky, played by Anna Friel, and father, Stephen, no longer live together, which puts additional pressure on Max who yearns for an idyllic home life.
