This inspirational edition of the wonderful My Life strand of documentaries for children tells the story of 16-year-old Lewis, an amazing young man with big ideas.

Lewis has been very ill his whole life, after a brain tumour as a baby left him with hydrocephalus and epilepsy, meaning life is a daily struggle.

Yet that doesn’t stop him organising a huge prom for teenagers like him, who were too ill to attend their own school parties.

With the help of some very special friends, his brilliant mum and Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw, Lewis pulls off a party like no other.

His bravery, good humour and determination are awe-inspiring.
