Synopsis

Long Time No See is the story of a white working class woman named Freda who marries Billy, a hopeful young Jamaican whom she meets in the Ska and Reggae filled dance halls
of 1960s Manchester. Freda and Billy have a son, Devon, who has learning difficulties. On the day of Billy's funeral, Freda's estranged brother Alex, forces his way back into their
lives and unearths 40 years of buried resentments, racial hatred and painful family secrets.
