Synopsis

A Fight to Belong by Alan Gibbons

An envelope drops through the letter box of the Okolo family in Manchester. But it isn't anybody's birthday. Instead, that letter turns the lives of Awele, 8, and Anwuli, 5, upside down. It's from the government, telling the Okolo family they are going to be deported back to Nigeria.
