Djata (Lorenzo Allchurch) is a care-free 12-year-old growing up in a brutal dicatorship shut off from the outside world. When the government imprisons his father Peter (Ross Partridge), Djata and his mother Hannah (Agyness Deyn) are
labeled traitors. Determined to find out where Peter is but increasingly alienated by society, Djata and Hannah have to navigate a world of propaganda, abuse, estranged patriotic grandparents (Johnathan Pryce and Fiona Shaw) corrupt military officials (Greta Scacchi), and
a vicious teenage gang, all of which expose the brutal, deadly regime under which they live, forcing Djata and his mother to risk everything to reunite the family and stand up to tyranny.
