One of the shining stars at this year’s Venice Film Festival, this social drama tells a powerful story about immigrant life in the UK today. When social services set the wheels in motion to forcibly adopt the children of a Portuguese immigrant family, the family is pitched into a legal battle—and a fight for their honor.
