The true story of Stevie, aged 14, who is struggling with his gender identity when he is fostered by Cathy after his erratic behaviour brought his caregivers up short.

When Cathy is told to expect Stevie, who is gender fluid, she isn't sure what the term means and looks it up online. Stevie and his two younger siblings, Liam and Kiri, have been brought up by their grandparents, as their mother is drug and alcohol dependent and in prison. As Stevie's behaviour grows more unstable, the grandparents can no longer cope and put him into care.

As Stevie settles into life at Cathy's, he starts to attend school more often and his behaviour improves - things seem to be looking up. However, Cathy notices that he is spending an increasing amount of time in his room and on the internet. Soon enough, Stevie shuts himself off from the world around him. Silent and withdrawn, Cathy's unrelenting concern for Stevie's wellbeing leads her to discover the terrifying root of his behaviour...

Lost Boy is a dark and poignant true story that highlights the dangers lurking online and the trouble the unknown can cause.
