A Tender Christmas

1993. Young Jason Manford is scared. At the tender age of 12, he's embarking on his first trip away from home. The destination? Hospital, for a circumcision no less. Gulp.

Throw in a patient named Bulldog who's determined to get her paws on him and a nurse making eyes at his dad, and the experience takes a turn for the even worse. But then the youngster meets Judy, the resident babe of the children's ward. Embarrassed by his unglamorous procedure, Jason pretends to be in for surgery on his superduper brain - could the fib bag him his first kiss?


Produced by Left Bank Pictures and Invisible Man.
