The Last Tree is the semi-autobiographical story of Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after being fostered in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner-city London to live with his birth mother. In his teens, Femi is struggling with the culture and values of his new environment. Femi must decide which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London during the early 00s.

Starring Sam Adewunmi, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Denise Black, Tai Golding and Nicholas Pinnock, the film is released September 27 in the UK, with a U.S. date to be announced.
