The New Tribe

Life changes overnight for the Arlingtons when an abandoned baby girl, Julia, arrives unexpectedly on their doorstep. The couple take her in and settle into family life. But then, just two years later, their lives change once again when they are told a Nigerian mother is in desperate need of a loving home for her baby boy, Chester. Instantly marked as different from the other children in his school – and even from his own family – Chester’s pain and confusion at growing up an outcast ignites in him a desire to find out about his biological family.
