Baby Bird was inspired by the recent change in the law and the way we deal with serial truants, and shows us a lost generation and how we might find them.

Recorded on location around the streets of Hull, this is the story of thirteen year old Jenny Wren who has lost her Gran.

Her Mum has given up believing in tomorrow, her friend Mouse is not much better and Morris her welfare officer believes he can promise the world, change the future.

All the authorities see is a constant truant from school with serial behavioural problems, but Jenny has a plan; once her Mum's happy again she's determined to show them all just how well she can fly.

The trouble is, she's growing tired of waiting.
