"If you can't beat 'em, join 'em," is the survival strategy behind the feature film debut and life story of Akinnuoye-Agbaje. FARMING tells the story of Enitan, who is put into an English working class family by his Nigerian parents in order to get education. In his unrelenting desire for identity, Enitan, who grew up in the 80s, joins a skinhead gang. Hate and emotional abuse by his foster mother subject Enitan to dangerous brainwashing. Only his teacher does not give him up. Will he succeed in decisively liberating himself in the end? Powerful cinema with Damson Idris and Kate Beckinsale in the leading roles.
