October 2019, three months before Brexit, hundreds of Portuguese migrant workers pour into Great Yarmouth, Norfolk (UK), seeking work at the local turkey-processing factories. Tania (“The Mother of the Portuguese”), who used to work in these poultry plants, has climbed the ranks after marrying an English hotel owner, and is now a facilitator for the Portuguese workers. Her dream of becoming a British citizen and leaving this dirty business behind is threatened by the arrival of the latest group of immigrants.
