Jim Loach

Jim Loach follows in his father Ken's footsteps with this moving social issues drama based on real events.

In 1980s' Nottingham, social worker Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson) uncovered a dark and shocking secret. Up until the 1970s, over a period of almost 100 years, UK authorities shipped more than 100,000 children in care to Australia, often into lives of horrific abuse. After being approached by one victim, Margaret begins to make contact with others, and, at great risk to herself, sets about reuniting thousands of families.
