On holiday with her streetwise son in Lagos, a British-Nigerian mother is in turmoil. Should she leave her only child in a strict Lagos boarding school, or return him to the 'battlefields' of inner London…?

A family spanning three generations and two continents meet together in Lagos for the first time in over thirty years. But the joy of reunion also unleashes long-suppressed truths.

An exuberant mix of comedy, tragedy and family drama, Pandora's Box reveals the heartbreak behind the difficult choices all parents must make and the price their children pay.
