Cathy Brady’s debut is an emotionally stirring exploration of two sisters struggling to emerge from a traumatic past.
Having disappeared from her quiet border town in Northern Ireland a year prior, Kelly (Nika McGuigan) suddenly shows up on the doorstep of her sister, Lauren (Nora-Jane Noone).
Born within a year of each other, the sisters share a deep bond despite their differences: Kelly, the wild one, makes Lauren’s married life and factory job look like pillars of conventionality. Kelly’s return, however, quickly stirs up long-repressed traumas between the sisters, and in their community that threaten this veneer of stability. And Lauren soon must choose between the life she knows and her connection to her sister.
Directed by Cathy Brady. Produced by Carlo Cresto-Dina, Charles Steel, David Collins
