EVERYBODY’S CHILD

 
Garry Fraser behind bars

Commissioned by BBC and Creative Scotland

Filmmaker and recovered heroin addict, Garry Fraser, takes us on a journey as
he faces some demons from his past. In doing so he takes us to the heart of his
community that was ripped apart by an AIDS epidemic during the 1980’s. The
story reveals a poor community struggling with addiction and the spread of a virus
that killed a large proportion of their youngsters. This is an open and heart rending
journey where Fraser needs to face some grim challenges before moving forward
with his own life.
