‘You never allow me tell my story. I been trying to tell it someone and nobody listenin’

August Henderson is a man of the people. He is a loveable, charming and witty character who loves nothing more than a chat. He balances his time between his three adorable kids, his beloved wife-to-be and the maintenance of his co-owned fruit and veg shop. Since landing in West Bromwich, he has built a life for himself, one that warms his heart with pride.

When a political scandal threatens to sabotage his idyllic life, August must act quickly. In no time at all August finds himself denied his legal rights as he is falsely detained and threatened with deportation to a country that he has no memory of, but he isn’t willing to leave without a fight.

Filled with raw emotion and diffused with belly-clutching humour. August in England explores the lives impacted by the Windrush scandal. Watch as August faces the injustice of a Home Office attack.
