About Shantaye's World

A sweeping drama set in 1940s St Lucia, Shantaye’s World follows Shantaye Anderson, a young woman, as she navigates the island nation’s divide between disadvantaged locals, and affluent landowners from abroad.

When Shantaye falls in love with a young white man, pressure from both her family and the community forces her to leave her home for Great Britain. Stepping aboard the HMT Windrush, Shantaye envisions a hopeful new future - but she finds herself in an entirely different reality when she arrives in a war-torn England.
