Set within visiting hour in the juvenile detention facility where he is living, the young man struggles to comprehend the manner of his crimes while she tentatively tries to reconcile her own story.

Wretch is based on stories you may have heard, real stories written in the media, about crimes committed by young men. But Wretch looks deep inside this relationship - the one that matters when nothing else does. After all, it is the judgment of a boy’s mother that is most damning, and her love that survives all.

You and me out here can choose to ignore, but stuck in their world neither of them can.
