Over Here, Over There

As politicians debate the conditions in migrant camps and the treatment of asylum seekers in the UK, Shami Chakrabarti's drama takes listeners to an imagined future.

From Fact to Fiction is an award-winning series in which writers create a fictional response to the week's news.

In a week that saw politicians debate the conditions in migrant camps and the treatment of Asylum Seekers in UK , Shami Chakrabarti takes us to an imagined future.

It is 2041. A mother and son argue about his plan to leave the country without permission. She is a settled refugee in her adopted state; the place of his birth. He is a radical; angry at his life of injustice and caught up in his plans to flee, yet he knows very little about his mother's own tale of escape.
