Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys (Emily Watson, two-time Academy Award® nominee for Breaking the Waves and Hilary and Jackie), a
social worker from Nottingham who uncovered one of the most significant social
scandals of recent times: the deportation of thousands of children from the United
Kingdom to Australia. Children as young as four had been told that their parents
were dead, and been sent to children’s homes on the other side of the world.
Many were subjected to appalling abuse. They were promised oranges and
sunshine: they got hard labor and life in institutions. Almost single-handedly,
against overwhelming odds, and with little regard for her own well-being,
Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and
drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
