Based on the much-loved Jacqueline Wilson novel, DUSTBIN BABY follows the heartbreaking journey of 14-year old April (Dakota Blue Richards, THE GOLDEN COMPASS) as she traces back over a troubled life of foster care and failed adoption in a bid to find her birth mother. Abandoned as a newborn in a dustbin outside a pizzeria, April's life has sprung from one tragedy to the next. After an argument with Marion (Juliet Stevenson, TRULY MADLY DEEPLY), her most recent guardian, the tenacious young teen runs away. Taking the opportunity to re-visit the scenes of these tragedies, she discovers a surprising amount of love and compassion along the way.
