Event Information

Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage, enjoys a happy rural childhood where he is raised by a doting foster mother and surrounded by a tight-knit group of friends – until his real mother reclaims him and whisks him back to inner-city London.  With little emotional bond with her and no remembrance of their cultural heritage, Femi struggles to adapt. 

Writer/director Shola Amoo pairs a lived-in honesty with a fresh, exciting stylistic panache in this powerful depiction of the perilous path to manhood.
