Stevie
ABC2  |  June 10, 2012

University student Steve James (Hoop Dreams) became a 'Big Brother' to Stevie Fielding, a difficult, hyperactive kid, living a sad and troubled life in a rural community in Illinois. James ended formal 'Big Brother' duties with Stevie in 1985 when he moved to Chicago and despite feeling he should stay in touch, lost complete contact. Ten years later James reconnects with Stevie and, with his permission, begins a film about him - a search to discover what had happened to Stevie over the past ten years and an attempt to understand the forces that had shaped his life. Broadcast as part of ABC's Sunday Best.
