    • Synopsis
    • FARMING is the electrifying true story of Enitan (Damson Idris), a young Nigerian boy, 'farmed out' by his parents to a white British family in the hope of giving him a better future. Instead, Enitan grows up to become the feared leader of a white skinhead gang in 1980s England.

      Fuelled by themes of identity, power, love and betrayal, FARMING is rich with compelling characters: A Fagin-Like foster mother Ingrid (Kate Beckinsale), charismatic gang leader Levi , and at its heart our flawed hero, Enitan, a lost and tortured soul, desperately searching for a mother's love as he struggles to find himself in a brutal world. When all seems lost and Enitan spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption…
