There are 1 Billion people with a disability in the world. Yet with so many people with disabilities, one would imagine they are accepted as part of society, have equal opportunities to education and work - however, in this short documentary film, we learn that people with disabilities are often less than second class citizens in their own Country.
Two ten year-old boys are detained by police under suspicion of abducting and murdering a toddler. A true story based on interview transcripts and records from the James Bulger case which shocked the world in 1993 and continue to incite public outrage across the United Kingdom today
