Eunice (1949): It’s 1949, and a year after arriving on the Empire Windrush, Eunice Daley finds herself moving into a room in her uncle’s house, her belongings crammed into cardboard boxes. The year has not been easy, her aspirations and confidence battered by the reality of employment and living conditions in London for West Indians like herself. She dare not tell her family back home about her new existence. However, a surprise relationship with an Englishman that promised so much has had the greatest influence on her life so far, and forces her to reassess her image and expectations of the ‘mother country’.
