The shocking death of ten year old Damilola Taylor in 2000 saw an innocent schoolboy lose his life on the streets of London. In front of the world’s media, his parents embarked on a gruelling path to find justice - but behind closed doors, how could their love survive such private grief?

This feature length drama reveals the personal story behind the headlines, immersing us in Damilola’s world, exploring his journey from Lagos to London, and his family’s quest for justice. Told primarily from the point of view of Damilola’s father, Richard Taylor OBE, starring Babou Ceesay and Wunmi Mosaku, written by Levi David Addai and directed by Bafta-winner Euros Lyn, this is a surprising, intimate and deeply moving story of fatherhood, family and hope.

Without question the drama of the week and one of the best of the year so far... one of the most powerful pieces of television you will ever see...

Your heart will break long before Damilola reaches London

In the end, I wished it had gone on longer, being not about death but about humanity
