Synopsis: Phoenix Rising follows the first steps of an 18-year-old leaving care – steps that lead straight into poverty, bad company and the constant attacks of his worst enemy – himself. Out on the track, he is untouchable. No-one can get near him. But when his wings start to fail him, he will have to look deeper into himself, and face his demons, to make one final flight.
