A family of siblings document the journey of fighting for their immigrant mother, Iciline Brown, to gain reentry into the UK, in which she used to reside as a legal resident.
The documentary shows how a family advocates for their mother within a growing xenophobic UK immersed in a Brexit climate that works to oust people of color, members of the African diaspora, and those who worked to restore the British Empire after it suffered significant damage from world wars.
The documentary continues the complicated discussion of immigration in former colonial nations and post-slavery countries, while showing the parallels of the UK and US.
