As Brexit looms, hundreds of migrant workers arrive in the coastal town of Great Yarmouth looking for work, in Marco Martins’ damning depiction of immigrant life in a fracturing Britain.

Three months before Brexit, hundreds of Portuguese migrant workers seeking work at the local turkey factories pour into the UK village of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. Tânia (“The Mother of the Portuguese”), who used to work in these poultry plants, has climbed the ranks after marrying an English hotel owner, and is now a facilitator for the Portuguese workers. Her dream of becoming a British citizen and leaving this dirty business behind is threatened by the arrival of the latest group of immigrants, which unleashes a series of events that disrupts her volatile existence.
