Australian Premiere

Late-middle-aged mother Mel (Maryann Plunkett) is facing a lonely future following a separation from her husband and with her two adult daughters too caught up in their own lives to spend any real time with her.

Depressed, events spin out of control, and she finds herself in the psychiatric ward. Meanwhile, her daughters Connie (Jennifer Lafleur) and Casey (Eilis Cahill) face their own personal issues, but are forced by circumstances to come together and make decisions.   

Combining elements of comedy and drama the script sparks with both dry-humour and genuine understanding. First-time-feature director Putka’s emphasis on character allows the shifting relationships between the protagonists to drive the film and the cast bring genuine life to their roles, creating an exceptional and very snappy indie movie.
