Director Deborah Haywood will attend the screening on Mon 26 Feb.

Deborah Haywood’s heartbreaking debut confronts all the misery of being targeted by bullies. Teenager Iona (Lily Newmark) and her mother Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) have moved to a Midlands town seeking a fresh start. Nobody is willing to look beyond Lyn’s physical disabilities and eccentric ways to offer her the hand of friendship and Iona is soon the plaything of merciless mean girls at school. Both women retreat into a fantasy world of lies and deceit as the loving bond between them unravels in a gothic, coming of age fairy tale with echoes of Stephen King’s Carrie.
