When a chance encounter triggers an unexpected collision of worlds, painful truths are uncovered and the brutality of past crimes spills into the next generation.

"I see individual desires or the suppression of desire as inseparable from the social and economic order in which that individual lives. If you are reduced to being 'hands' on a ship or, even more miserable, 'hands' on a plantation, and that occupation is unimaginably brutal, then any expression of desire – for sex or freedom – is a revolt of sorts. And it is in that expression, however small, that hope lies for radical change." -Playwright Naomi Wallace
"The magnificent thing about Naomi's writing is that she marries politics and poetry - politics with a small "p" and Poetry with a big "P" - and she investigates the human condition through these two lenses."- Director Kwame Kwei-Armah
