Following in the footsteps of his director father Ken, first-time feature director Jim Loach here delivers a powerful social issue drama. It tells the true story of Nottingham social worker Margaret Humphreys and her discovery of an unjust government practice of the last century – the forced migration of children from the UK to Australia. Slow and restrained, the film holds back on emotional punch - but the facts alone are harrowing. Many of these children were wrongly told their parents were dead, and were promised oranges and sunshine only to find nothing but harsh treatment.
Powerful film set in 1930s Australia, where children born to mixed-race parents were often taken from their Aboriginal mothers by the state.
