Pebble on the Beach is the true story of one boy’s ability to survive. Growing up in Brighton, England, Tony was subjected to a childhood of physical and mental abuse – including electric shock treatment at the age of ten – abandoned by his family at fifteen, and sent to Australia to fend for himself.
