A mother and her teenaged daughter move into a Northern town. Disabled and friendless, mother Lyn (Scanlan – The Thick of It; The Invisible Woman) tries to keep daughter Iona (Newmark) in a state of childhood, but as the pressures of high school life weigh upon Iona, the pair’s relationship takes a painful turn… Haywood and her cast weave an intriguing and disturbing spell in this imaginative, inventive and moving debut.
Joanna Scanlan joins us for a Q&A after the film.
