The gritty story of Billy Casper who escapes his day-to-day misery of neglect, bullying and a bleak future down the pit by training a kestrel was first told in the 1968 novel A Kestrel For A Knave by Barry Hines, and made famous by director Ken Loach for the award-winning film Kes. It is not the training of the young hawk that is important, but the admiration and affection it inspires in Billy, feelings which neither his school nor family offer. However, Billy must understand that freedom and escapism come at a cost.
