Daylight Come is a celebration of the Windrush generation, spanning the 1950s to the present day. At Grace’s funeral, her family and friends gather to remember her life - leaving Jamaica, her early days in England, and her marriage. The funeral brings a surprise or two as well, but that’s all part of life.
