Illegal alien Okwe – a Nigerian doctor with tragic secrets – works two jobs and rents sofa space from Turkish refugee Senay. When he makes a gruesome discovery he cannot go to the police, but risks sleuthing himself, while trying to protect Senay and evade immigration authorities.
Meaty, honest and touching work that reflects modern multicultural society, with Frears doing what he does most creatively: casting a fresh light on the dark corners of life.
