Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from England. She uncovered a social scandal that involved children from the UK being forcibly sent to Australia. Humphreys works hard and mostly by herself to reunite thousands of families, bring authorities to account and worldwide attention to the problem.
Promotional Line: “Many were subjected to appalling abuse. They were promised oranges and sunshine, they got hard labour and life in institutions.”
Oranges and Sunshine will see limited releases in LA and New York on October 21st, 2011.
