A quarter of a million children in the UK have a parent in prison, but it’s a subject that’s rarely spoken about and the ways in which children are affected are often overlooked.

This moving My Life documentary explores the anxiety caused by having a parent in prison. Like all My Life documentaries, it is told from the children’s perspective and explores what life is like for 11-year-old Flynn and his 14-year-old sister Maisie, and for 11-year-old Tala.
