Lorna Tucker

Now a successful filmmaker, Lorna Tucker (Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist; Amà) was once a teenage runaway sleeping rough on the streets of London.

Embarking on a moving journey through the streets of her past, Someone’s Daughter, Someone’s Son shines a deeply personal and altogether vital spotlight on the experience of being homeless.

As we hear the life stories of extraordinary individuals, and learn how the system has both aided and failed them, this raw, intimate and unforgettable film asks: why hasn’t public policy placed this issue firmly in the past? How can we help? And what contribution can those with experience of homelessness make to putting effective solutions in place?
