Locked In Boy

Meet Jonathan, the extraordinary boy with severe cerebral palsy who talks with his eyes and writes poetry.

This informative, moving documentary follows Jonathan, an extraordinary, smart, funny, ten-year-old, who for the first eight years of his life was locked in his body - unable to speak or communicate. 

In the last two years, with his mum's help and through his own will and determination Jonathan has learned to talk with his eyes using a special spelling board. 

Now unlocked Jonathan takes us on his very personal mission to give a voice to other children unable to express themselves, from presenting his petition to a government minister to reading his own story to his hero, Michael Morpurgo.
