Josie Lawrence (Finding Your Feet) and Tanya Myers (A Room for Romeo Brass) star in this understated yet captivating family drama, as two sisters return to their mother’s seaside home after her death to sort out her belongings.
Mixed feelings emerge, as their theatrical late mother habitually cheated on their father, and the echoes of her actions still shake the present day.
Jon Sanders’ individualistic style balances kitchen sink realism with fleeting quick-witted comedy to thoughtful effect.
