It is an interesting story.
A young black man called Marcus, who grew up with nothing, takes on a government crammed with those who grew up with everything.
On the face of it, it is an impossible story, the battle lines too unfair.
He should be crushed by the dull blows of power, laughed out of court, ignored, patronised, mocked, ‘Get back to what you know!’
Only he does know, he knows very well, he knows better than them, and his strength gathers the strength of others around him.
Light a fire and others bring their fuel, or, on this occasion, their food.
Government twists, writhes and contorts as around them goodness flows, it just won’t stop.
Reminding us that nothing is written in stone.
