Leaving London Behind

Original title Leaving London Behind


In the summer of 2011, 97 of London’s most vulnerable 9-13 year olds were taken on a residential summer holiday by charity Kids Company. ‘Leaving London Behind’ follows two of these children, 11 year old boys Kyle and Lakwai, as they form new relationships and face new challenges on their week away from home.
