Christie (Daniel Day-Lewis) ist eines von 13 Kindern der Dubliner Arbeiterfamilie Brown. Seit seiner Geburt ist er spastisch gelähmt. Tatsächlich ist Christie nicht der bemitleidenswerte Krüppel, für den man ihn hält, sondern ein intelligenter und kreativer Junge, der mit eisernem Willen sein Schicksal in den Griff bekommt. Mühsam lernt er mit seinem linken Fuß zu malen und zu schreiben, und schließlich arbeitet er sogar an einem Roman... Jim Sheridans Film nach dem autobiographischen Roman des echten Christie schildert den Kampf eines Behinderten gegen Vorurteile und eigene Ängste ohne melodramatische Weinerlichkeit. Daniel Day-Lewis und Brenda Fricker, die seine couragierte Mutter spielt, wurden für ihren schauspielerischen Parforce-Ritt 1989 mit Oscars ausgezeichnet
