Oranges and Sunshine is the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham, England who uncovers one of the most significant scandals in recent times: the organized deportation of nearly 130,000 children who were removed from orphanages and group homes in Britain and sent to western Australia and other locations. Many of the children were forced into hard labor where they endured physical cruelty and sexual abuse. Emily Watson portrays Margaret Humphreys, who almost single-handedly, reunited thousands of families, brought worldwide attention to this travesty and brought authorities to account.
