A story based on one family's truth, and the shared history of many: 1950's UK; an adoption takes place. A child born out of wedlock to a mother who was only a teenager herself…her working-class Jewish family gave up a baby to a wealthy Jewish family in a private adoption…with the rhetoric 'to give the child a better life'…or at least to give him a fighting chance…but people can show two faces, and life can be extremely complicated…and so is the rest of this story…

This portion of the play shows Hannah's distress of having to part with her baby; a snapshot of the time she spent with her child, and the effect this has on her family in the immediate aftermath.
