This powerful one-off film about the death of Damilola Taylor in 2000 has to be one of the most moving dramas we have seen all year.

Rather than focusing on the search for his killers, it centres on his devoted family’s move from Nigeria to the UK and then the shattering impact that the tragedy has on them as guilt and recrimination threaten to pull them apart.

National Treasure’s Babou Ceesay is spellbinding as Damilola’s father Richard who, in his grief, struggles to reach out to his wife Gloria, played by an equally sensational Wunmi Mosaku.

An emotive and thought-provoking watch.
