"I don't want to be a part of it
Flu York, Flu York"
Georgia's Nigerian mum married a Yorkshireman, and did anything to make their family fit in God's Own Country.
But Georgia was tired of just fitting in. A talented composer who got her wish to escape on a Fulbright Scholarship to study post-colonial musicology in New York, she vowed to make a success of herself & never ever return to Yorkshire.
But Coronavirus had other ideas..

Her school sent her home for the pandemic, and the only member of her "YorkGerian" fam who will welcome her is her Dad's step-son Bobby, who doesn't even believe in the virus.
They were never close, but now he's in another universe to her, building online fans with his outrageous rap music as MC Yorkie.

His followers aren't interested in Georgia's campus politics, and even Yorkshire's Nigerian diaspora - including happy-go-lucky hypeman Kayode & razor-sharp witted Christian maid Chika who regularly pop in - seem to care more about having a laugh with Bobby than her progressive causes.

Locked-down in a rowdy Covidiot's 1-bedroom flat in York's suburbs, can Georgia still change the world?
If she can Make It There, she'll Make It Anywhere!
