Scottish Premiere

With this intense combination of family psychodrama and apocalyptic nightmare, Scottish filmmaker Ruth Paxton confirms herself as a force to be reckoned with. The recently widowed Holly (Sienna Guillory) is left to care for her two teenage daughters. Betsey (Jessica Alexander) is the oldest and becomes convinced that she has been chosen by a 'higher power'. She stops eating but never loses weight. Does she have an eating disorder, mental health issues, or is something else going on? The tensions between faith, family and fear of the future create an unsettling, provocative tale rich in subtext and mystery.

The screening on Saturday 5 March will be followed by a Q&A with Ruth Paxton and Sienna Guillory.

This film is also screening online via Glasgow Film At Home.
