Buster Busts Loose!

A troubled foster kid uses his scathing word skills to become an unlikely rap battle champion. But when he doorsteps his biological mother after ten years in care, he is forced to face his toughest opponent yet: His Past.

8 MILE meets BOY A. VS. is an inspirational rites of passage drama set in the exciting UK rap battling scene.

8 Mile meets Boy A – ah so…

I always confuse Boy A and Never Let Me Go.

Penelope "Punky" Brewster is a warm, funny and bright child. Her father walked out on her family, then her mother abandoned her at a Chicago shopping center, leaving Punky alone with her dog Brandon.

This was the premise for a children's show.

Denis grew up in an orphanage, where his mother left him soon after his birth. He is a special boy, who due to a rare illness is immune to pain. This makes him popular among other boys, who take bets on how long he can endure cruel physical games.

One day his mother turns up out of the blue and takes him to Moscow, where he becomes part of a gang that extracts money from wealthy people. Denis becomes a "jumpman" – someone who jumps in front of cars to blackmail the drivers.

Reunited with his mother, Denis feels that this new life is a dream come true until one day… he starts feeling pain again.

This new life of jumping in front of cars to blackmail wealthy people is a dream come true.
