The play won the Richard Imison Memorial Award in 2012.
Inspired by a true story.
When Grace's Sudanese village is attacked, she scoops up her four young children and they flee, running for their lives. Safety is within reach, and a truck full of displaced villagers lets her on board. She loads her two daughters on to the truck and turns to lift the boys up - but they aren't there. And the truck must go. Grace must make any parent's most feared decision. A choice that is no choice - to save the children she has with her or abandon them to look for the two who are left behind.
This is the story of Grace - now living in the UK - and her battle to find and bring back her missing children.
