This film was created with young people living in the Bridgwater YMCA. At first we thought we would make a drama but as everyone began to tell their stories we realised that the film would be far stronger told by the young people in as simple a way as possible.

The young people interviewed each other, used photoshop to manipulate images of themselves and edited their own stories.

To see them standing on stage in the Odeon Leicester Square clutching the prestigious First Light Youth Voices award when only a year ago they were in such desperate circumstances is something none of us will ever forget. It was amazing.
