Synopsis


Billy Casper is 15 years old.


Bullied at school and unhappy at home, he doesn't fit in.


But when Billy comes across a wild kestrel and realises he can train her, he discovers a new life above the small Northern mining town in which he lives.


Together they learn to fly and Billy finds friendship and hope - until one snap decision and an unplaced bet change things forever.


Kes is the story of Billy's heart.


How it came to beat and how it came to break.
