As adults, siblings Shirley and Dwight remember their upbringing in 1980s Chapeltown Leeds differently. In the height of racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty, the struggle for survival ripped through their family.
Dwight was discovering what it meant to be an autistic young Black boy in a world determined never to understand him. Shirley was trying to forge her own independence away from rigid expectations at school and home.
Now as adults, they need to bring together the fractured pieces of their past in order to move forward.
