From BAFTA® Award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern, this powerful one-off feature examines the impact of the death of black teenager Anthony Walker by exploring what may have happened had he lived. The racist murder of Anthony in Liverpool in 2005 was a hate crime that shocked the nation. One innocent life snatched away, and so many others ruined by an act of hatred. What hopes would Anthony have had? What dreams would he have chased? What loves would he have lost? What lives would he have changed? What man would Anthony have become? Told in reverse chronology, this distinctive true crime drama presents a unique perspective on this devastating crime and the life it took away.
