Overview

Part of the 

strand.

A stirring and powerful film about a young mother, recently released from prison and desperate to maintain custody of her two young children.

Just when things appear to be at their darkest and most desperate for Molly (Posy Sterling), a chance encounter with an old school friend might be the start of a road towards a brighter future.

Writer/Director Daisy-May Hudson brings wit, warmth and humanity to this beautiful story of individuals on the margins of society bonding in the face of unimaginable hardship.
