"★★★★ – big-hearted music drama dresses to impress" – Guardian
Released from prison on licence, Travis (Jones) is back home and reconnecting with his partner Candice (Burke), a singer with West End ambitions, and daughter Kenisha (Olatunbosun) who is facing trouble at school.
When Candice is called for a big audition, she sees a dress in a shop window that inspires her, and Travis dutifully does what he can to buy it for her. The dress’s appearance in their lives changes everything.
A thoughtful and warm exploration of masculinity, Blackness and family relationships.
