Kwaku Mackenzie, founder of a Black policy think tank, hits the bottle after his fatherâs death. As media interest in the once dynamic Institute fades, his team grows fractious and then, disastrously, he favours a young Oxford scholar over his own devastated son. When, in a vain attempt to regain influence, he publicly champions divisions within the Black community, the consequences are shattering. Supported by JPMorgan through the JPMorgan Art of Learning ProgrammePerformers Don Warrington (Kwaku Mackenzie), Angel Coulby, Oscar James, Trevor Laird, Colin McFarlane, Chu Omambala, Javone Prince, Clifford Samuel, Ellen Thomas.
