My Feral Heart is a heartfelt study of the reticent character of the hero Luke, an independent young man with Down’s syndrome, who is facing dramatic life changes, new friendships and new challenges.
A sudden bereavement throws Luke, a fiercely independent young man with Down’s syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons. As friendships bloom and long-buried secrets are revealed, Luke verges dangerously close to disaster. My Feral Heart is a beautifully realized, understated character study bolstered by strong performances, distinctive cinematography and a deeply evocative score.
