Go Home is a drama about a Polish single-mother subject to abuse from a bunch of xenophobic local youths. It was inspired by the series of hate crimes against Poles in the wake of Britain's exit from the EU. Alicja lives in Romford with her two daughters, Agata and Kasia. She struggles to balance the demands of her two daughters with the need to make a living running her Polish corner shop. In the aftermath of the EU referendum, Alicja’s shop comes under fire from the youths. Spurred on by their ringleader Leanne, they vandalise the shop with graffiti, and kick a homeless man’s dog to death on the doorstep. Tensions rise as racist slurs and mocking orders to "go home" leave Alicja feeling a stranger in the community she’s lived in for over a decade. Worn down by all the abuse, Alicja’s eldest daughter expresses regret at her Polish ties in a confrontation with her mother. A desperate Alicja decides she must act to defend both her pride in her heritage and her right to call Romford home.
