Thousands of lost children.
A secret buried by time.
One woman will bring the truth to light.
Academy Award® nominee Emily Watson (War Horse) stars as a woman whose quest would challenge the leaders of two nations and force them to confess to a secret as stunning as the truth it revealed. ORANGES AND SUNSHINE tells the unforgettable true story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker who uncovered one of the most controversial scandals of recent times: the organized deportation of innocent children from the UK to Australia, where they were thought to be lost in the system forever. Against overwhelming odds, and with little regard for her own safety, Humphreys reunited thousands of families and brought worldwide attention to a corrupt system and an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
