‘You have chosen Britain but has it chosen you?

Four strangers are about to become collateral damage in the government’s hostile environment when their lives are interrupted by an impromptu ID spot check. They soon find themselves waiting for verification of their legal statuses. Tension bubbles into interrogations of self and each other, laying bare the realities of always being the other in the place you call home.

The Windrush scandal and a succession of Brexit immigration blunders have stirred a growing sense of unease. Described by Exeunt as ‘a strongly and beautifully worded reclamation of what it means to belong’, Ilé La Wà asks: How do you belong to a place that doesn’t see you?
