Fifty years ago, the entire Creole population of the Chagos Islands was displaced from their island homes by the British authorities. This secret operation took place in order to lease the largest island to the US Navy so that it could build a military base. Now, with the lease about to expire, Chagossian exiles struggle to recover their homeland. Sabrina Jean, the charismatic woman leading their fight in the UK, strives to keep the flame of hope alive so that her people can finally return home.
