Mighty oaks from little acorns grow, or at least that was the idea the government had when A Leg Up was conceived. The year is 2005, the project, to take thirty homeless men off the streets, train them for thirty days, and get them into work. An independent film maker and his crew employed to record the whole process, taxpayer money to fund it, direct oversight by three appointed government officials, and an all or nothing agenda where failure was not an option. But when things did go wrong, and with so many items of the government's dirty laundry on display, sweeping the whole thing under the rug became the order of the day, all footage of the event seized, never to see the light of day ever again. But the best laid plans of mice and men have a way of coming back to bite one squarely on the derriere, in this case, a transcript of all recorded footage taken down prior to its confiscation and subsequent burial amongst the vast archives which the government has deemed unsuitable for consumption by the public. As with Street Justice, this tale asks you to imagine a world where these goings on might well be closer to reality than you may well have previously thought. So in conclusion, please ask yourself which one is closer to the truth, Bigfoot, or big government making big mistakes, with big chunks of your taxes?
