Placing a child in care doesn't mean caring for a child.
When little Tommy Rhattigan was taken into care in 1963 aged just 7; he entered a closed off world of institutionalised sexual abuse.
Moved between a care home in Manchester and a reform school in Liverpool; the state was supposed to pick up the duty of care that his parents had failed to give him. But instead; separated from his siblings; young Tommy was thrown to the wolves.
Tommy Rhattigan takes us; in his own inimitable way; back to his own childhood of pranks; cruelty and laughter; grown from a need to survive his daily torment and to stick two fingers up to the system that was failing him so spectacularly.
