BLACK SHEEP follows the true story of a young black boy who at age 10 was moved by his family out of London after
the brutal killing of a young local boy from Nigeria.  It was an incident that shook the nation and his parents
alike who, fearing for their own son’s life, decided it would be best to relocate - only to find
themselves in a small town ran by a white racist gang.  


A story of racial abuse, a search of identity, and the length someone would go to in the name of survival..
