In July 2005, a black teenager called Anthony Walker was murdered by two white racists in
an unprovoked attack in Liverpool. He was just 18 years old.
Anthony tells the story of how this talented young man’s life may have turned out. Written by
BAFTA-winning screenwriter, Jimmy McGovern, Anthony’s imagined life is told through
reverse chronology as we see him realise his dreams and enjoy the life he had a right to live;
before fate - and hate - took it all away.
