In Femi’s mind, his childhood in a loving family in rural Lincolnshire was idyllic. But that was his life in foster care. Now aged 11, he is moving back to a South London council flat with Yinka, his Nigerian birth-mother, and the change is a huge shock for the sensitive boy. Struggling with the unfamiliar culture and values of his new environment, teenage Femi has to figure out which path to adulthood he wants to take. This semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama has earned a Sundance-nomination for director Shola Amoo.

“...a stirring study of a black teenager carving out his own identity in modern Britain.” Variety
