A powerful focus on the crisis in black masculinity, told though the three-part story of a Nigerian boy growing up in Britain.
We follow the story of Femi (played by Tai Golding as a young boy, and Sam Adewunmi as a teenager), a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after a happy childhood in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner London to live with his mum. Struggling with the unfamiliar culture and values of his new environment, teenage Femi must figure out which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London.
Young people can get caught between two cultures, not belonging in either and trying to find their own place. This is a gripping and meaningful film, where trees are an understated but potent symbol of a life that is possible.
