It's a young boy who seems to be sleeping on some hay, perhaps in a barn or basement or on a ship (honestly could be anywhere). He seems to be locked in or trapped in some way and frightened. It's possible there's an adult talking to him. I must have seen this on TV in the mid 90s, but I think it could be a film or television show from the 60s or 70s. If this image rings any bells I'd love to hear suggestions. I could then look them up and see if they are familiar. It's bothered me for the best part of 20 years that I can't seem to figure it out. It could be famous or it could be completely obscure!
