SIGH OF THE SEA. 90 minute Feature Film, scheduled for release in 2020 1000 seamen who were forcibly sent back to China without the knowledge of their English settled families, most thought that they had died


ANNA-MAY WILLIAMS (b. 1946, age 60) ANNA-MAY WILLIAMS is 60 but appears younger than her years.  Lithe, with a restlessness that matches her enquiring mind, she is always on the go. The consummate social butterfly, she knows many people, but they never really know her.  Even her appearance is elusive, with her dark hair and completion people never know if she’s Spanish, Black Irish or Italian.  Travelling the world as a photojournalist means just as people form a bond with her she’s off on another assignment. She has an open generous face, but behind her smile lurks an emptiness that comes from her inner demons.


ELLA WILLIAMS (b.1973 age 32) Mixed race Angolan and English ELLA WILLIAMS, is Anna May’s daughter, born in Angola, South West Africa. She could be mixed race because of where she was born, but she should have a good singing voice. She will probably have sung in a gospel choir when she was a kid. Someone like Rebecca Ferguson comes to mind.

COLETTE SAMUELS (62) English with a local accent.  Anna May’s older adoptive sister. She is the strong dependable sister and the glue that ties the family together. Unlike Anna May, she didn’t feel the need to spread her wings and never moved out of Liverpool. She married Paul when she was quite young, but they never had children of their own. Perhaps because of this is why she readily agreed to be a surrogate mother to Anna May’s daughter Ella.

JOHNNY MA (40s) Chinese man with a local accent. Local radio DJ. Johnny is charming, upbeat and genuinely interested in the local Chinese community.

JOHN PETAL (67) Eurasian/ Mixed Chinese and English. is a mild-mannered man who speaks with a soft Lancashire accent. He called the radio station because his Chinese father also disappeared in 1946.

MR SOO, (90) Chinese with Cantonese accent, and a smattering of scouse.  A spritely old Chinese scouser. Charming and well liked. He is known to the local Chinese as ‘Dai lo’ or Big boss, because he knows everything there is to know about the Liverpool Chinese community. In his younger years he was the foreman on the Blue Funnel line as he spoke both English and Chinese.

NUI AN (50) Chinese with a Shanghi accent.  Nui An has all the grace and sophistication of a Shanghainese woman. Elegant and beautiful, she is Sang Dai Sam’s daughter from his second marriage in China and Anna May and Jimmy’s half sister.

ELDERLY EURASIAN (Chinese/ English) CHARACTERS 60-70 years old.  Rita, Doreen and Thomas all live and grew up in Liverpool so they speak with a local accent.

SHELLY (22) Shelly has been assigned to be Anna May’s personal assistant for the duration of the exhibition. A recent graduate, she is an intern for the photographic gallery where Anna May is having a retrospective of her life’s work.

GARY (30s) Arty looking director of the photographic gallery. He is of that generation of people who have grown up to be risk adverse. So whilst he is well-read in art history, controversy makes him a bit nervous.

PAUL SAMUELS (68) Paul is Colette’s husband. An affable man and well known in the community because of his history of being a big player in the Liverpool music scene in the 60s.
