Details

Charlotte (Bobbi Jene Smith), a successful contemporary dancer, is thriving in London. Working on her first major show as a choreographer, her world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s pregnant and her grandmother Mari (Paddy Glynn) is dying. Dropping everything, she heads to Dorset to join her mother (Phoebe Nicholls) and sister (Madeline Worrall) to await the inevitable. Faced with old family tensions resurfacing, Charlotte is forced to confront her past to choose the future she wants.

Performed by celebrated contemporary dancer Bobbi Jene Smith in her first dramatic role, dance sequences choreographed by Maxine Doyle (Associate Director and Choreographer for Punchdrunk) are innovatively woven into the film’s narrative to express Charlotte’s interior struggle. All set to an evocative score by classical rising star Peter Gregson, writer-director Georgia Parris’ debut feature is a bold meditation on mortality, motherhood and the unbreakable bond between the two.
