Sitting In Limbo

Sitting In Limbo


After living in the UK since he was 8 years old, Anthony (Patrick Robinson) decides to visit his elderly mother in Jamaica.  He has never held, or needed, a passport before and while filling out the paperwork at the Passport Office he is stunned to discover that there is no record of him as a British Citizen -despite having lived in the country since 1965. With the onus on him to prove his British citizenship to the Immigration Office, Anthony finds himself stuck in limbo, forced to leave his job and unable to claim benefits. In the early hours of a Sunday morning, Anthony is forcibly removed from his home and detained as an illegal immigrant. The devastation that ensues puts Anthony at the centre of what has now become known as the Windrush scandal.
