Wallace and Nathan - father and son, first generation immigrant and second.
The father who has struggled to create a better life for his son, and the son who feels so cheated because that expectation has been thwarted.

Wallace dreams of a return to Jamaica, but in his struggle to persuade Nathan to come with him, both father and son’s differences and secrets force them to face each other in an emotionally charged story of nature vs nurture.
