Emily Watson portrays Margaret Humphreys (who wrote the book this drama is based on), a social worker who discovers a horrifying secret: children from broken homes were being deported en masse from the U.K. to Australia, after they were told their parents were dead. She wages a one-woman crusade to reunite these deportees, now adults living in Australia, with the families they had lost, no matter what toll it may take on her. I recently had the chance to speak with Emily Watson, author Margaret Humphreys, and director Jim Loach about this compelling true-story drama.
