Shenagh Cameron follows the true-life events faced by Anthony Bryan, a painter decorator, and Tottenham Hotspur fan, who after fifty years applies for a passport to visit his ailing mother in Jamaica. Having originally travelled to Britain from the Caribbean on her passport, he finds himself in a never-ending series of humiliating struggles which result in him being wrongly detained by the Home Office and threatened with deportation.
