From a Street Kid is a children’s story based on the extraordinary true life-story of Stephen Lungu.

As a child Stephen was abandoned by his mother and ended up living under a bridge. As a teenager he was homeless, jobless, illiterate, the leader of a violent gang, and into drugs, alcohol and crime.

Then, at twenty, out of the blue, his life totally changed.
