17 years old and alone in the world, Mamie travels to Britain from the Democratic Republic of Congo in search of safety. Shunted off by the careless, well-meaning but useless authorities she soon loses touch with her only friend and is easy prey for unscrupulous landlords and gang masters. Made in Birmingham with non-actors from within the refugee community who give impressive, touchingly honest performances, this shows just what life is like for child asylum seekers in the UK.

Screen West MidlandsThe screening will be introduced by the director, Mr Yousaf Ali Kahn and, the producers, Sally Hibbin and Lee Thomas, Head of Production at Screen West Midlands.
