synopsis

An extraordinary true story, Oranges and Sunshine is a powerful tale of courage and compassion from the producers of The King’s Speech. Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson), is an ordinary social worker from Nottingham who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals of recent times: the deportation of thousands of children from the United Kingdom to Australia. Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds and with little regard for her own well-being, Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
