Summary: Orange and Sunshine tells the true story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker who uncovered one of the most controversial scandals in recent times; the organized deportation of innocent children from the United Kingdom to Australia, where they were thought to be lost in the system forever. Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds, and with little regard for her own safety. Humphreys reunited thousands of families and brought worldwide attention to a corrupt system and an extraordinary miscarriage of justice. (Cohen Media Group)
