Truth, love and resilience
Meet Christopher, a remarkable boy with an
extraordinary mind. He’s a maths prodigy, a keen
observer, and uniquely perceptive. However,
everyday life poses challenges for him – he’s never

and distrusts strangers.
One night, just seven minutes before midnight,
Christopher discovers Mrs Shears’ dog dead in the
