A story based on the life of Nigerian-British actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. In the 1960s through 1980s, Nigerian children were farmed out to white working class families in the UK and as they were in private foster care many of them were never registered with social services making them invisible to the authorities. Growing up in white communities across the country these children slowly lost their cultural identity and many were never reunited with their parents.
