Stuart A Life Backwards

Stuart A Life Backwards details the remarkable friendship between a reclusive writer and illustrator and a chaotic homeless man whom he gets to know during a campaign to release two charity workers from prison. As the writer learns more about the homeless man's complicated life and traumatic childhood, he asks if he can write his story and the homeless man advises him to tell the story backwards, so that it's "more exciting - like a Tom Clancy murder mystery."

A Neal Street Production for BBC2 and HBO, based on the award winning novel by Alexander Masters of the same name.
