As they leave murmurs of a troubled past behind, a special bond has developed between Lynn (Joanna Scanlan) and her adolescent daughter Iona (Lily Newmark), and they are excited to be starting a new life in a new town together. Iona is keen to make friends with the cool girls at school, while Lynn generously lends her stepladders to a neighbour. Their efforts to be sociable are met with mockery and bullying, and the pair retreat into themselves, finding comfort in fantasy and lies. The singular debut feature from Deborah Haywood is the brilliant, vivid, mischievous and pleasingly warped.
