Nigerian immigrant Femi has spent an idyllic childhood with a foster family in rural England. When his mother returns to the UK, Femi moves with her to a tough neighborhood in South London, where he must come to terms with his birth family and African heritage amid the tribulations of adolescence and urban poverty. The Guardian praised this tender coming-of-age tale as “impressively understated yet profoundly moving.”
