DRYCH: Byw Heb Freichiau

Documentary finding out how being born with no arms has affected 76 year old Frank Letch and how it has affected the relationship between him and his family. Born during the blitz in London Frank has not let being born without arms negatively affect his life, from an early age he used his feet for everything, teaching himself to use his feet to cut vegetables, make tea and coffee, brush his teeth and write. He was the first of his family to go to University and was the star striker for the Birmingham University football team before ending up teaching French and learning Welsh to teach at a school in North Wales. With a wealth of archive from every stage of his life, this film shows how every success has its price, and how Frank's desire to live life to the max has caused a rift with some of his children.
