Backstory: Based on true events, “Oranges and Sunshine” tells the story of how social worker Margaret Humphreys (played by Watson) discovered, exposed and brought restitution to many victims of an international forced migration scandal involving children taken from state care, told their parents were dead and forced into abusive labor. Humphreys has since spent the past 25 years working to reunite these “lost” children with their parents.
