You’ve got to learn how to keep it inside. We have to. The world doesn’t like us acting out. They’ll put you down any chance they get. You can’t be doing all this screaming.

As siblings Shirley and Dwight bury their mother, they remember their upbringing in 1980s Chapeltown Leeds differently

In the height of racial discrimination, police brutality and poverty, the struggle for survival ripped through their family

Now as adults, they need to bring together the fractured pieces of their past in order to move forward

Zodwa Nyoni’s gripping and heartfelt drama explores the complexities and beauty of what it really means to care for one another
