Fictiefilm / 2019 / duration: 1:30 / Verenigd Koninkrijk / director: Fyzal Boulifa / Cast: Nichola Burley, Christopher Patrick Nolan, Jack Shalloo, e.a. / Spoken languages: English / Subtitles: Dutch, French

Lynn and Lucy have been friends their whole lives; inseparable at school and now living as neighbors and young mothers on an estate. But when a tragedy befalls the pair, a chain of events is set in motion that will severely test their bond, bringing out fears and resentments in the local community. This beautifully acted and haunting film, manages the trick of transcending its kitchen sink aesthetic and slice-of-life scenario to deliver something akin to a modern morality play. Without easy answers or resolutions, the film presents the thorniest 'what if?' scenario, confronting us with a taut thriller of bad choices, misunderstandings and escalating social unrest. —London Film Festival

Press:

"A pair of electrifying performances lie at the heart of this terrific first feature.” - The Observer

"It's a potent tale of dread, reinforced by great performances from Scrimshaw and Burley." ★★★★ - The Guardian
