Description

When Paul and Jennifer Collins learn that their brilliant toddler may never master the most basic forms of human connection, their once-solid marriage begins to crumble. Paul looks for answers in the outrageous story of Peter the Wild Boy, a mysterious 18th century youth adopted by King George I.

Based on a critically-acclaimed memoir, Wild Boy is the compelling journey of parents facing the greatest of challenges, as well as a stirring exploration of what makes us human.
