One Child is a two-part drama for BBC Two, written by Guy Hibbert and directed by John Alexander. It is co-produced by BBC In-House Drama England Production and Sundance TV.
It stars Katie Leung (Harry Potter) as a young Chinese-born woman adopted by Anglo-American parents asked to return to her birthplace, Guangzhou, where her birth mother desperately seeks her assistance in saving her son. How far will Mei go to help the woman who gave her away and the brother she’s never met? The story takes a new look at what it means to be family.
