At six weeks old, Enitan (Zephan Amissah) is left in the care of a white working-class family in the dock-town of Tilbury, in Essex. His new surrogate mother, Ingrid (Beckinsale), makes for a complex, but dubious foster parent. Unsure of his place in the world, and lacking a mother’s love, desperate to belong the teenage Enitan (Idris) spirals into self-destruction, falling in with a local skinhead gang led by Levi (Dagleish). When all seems lost, a sympathetic teacher, Miss Dapo (Mbatha-Raw), offers him one last shot at redemption.
Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realise that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself
