Runaway (1989, TV Movie)

"Just worry about yourself." Aremis' embittered aunt tells him when he volunteers to help out handicapped kids. But Aremis is about to learn firsthand the importance of people helping each other. "They think I did it," he whispers after a gang attack leads to the death of his handicapped friend. With the police in pursuit, he slips down into the New York's subway system to hide. He quickly learns that the harsh world of the homeless is a dangerous and lonely place for a young boy and that he can't survive without the kindness of others.
