"A charming film exploring the subtle dynamics of brother and sisterhood".
Cara, the first kid in the family to graduate, returns from her gap year to a family celebration in her honour. Older brother Nathan, forced to drop out of his music degree after a life-changing hand injury, is conflicted. Pleased to see his sister; angry and bitter at the world after his accident; stagnating at home looking after their increasingly alcoholic mother, he struggles to contain his jealousy.
But for the accident, this should have been his party.
The script was developed by Northern Ireland Screen’s script consultant and short film executive through their Access Shorts scheme; an initative to find film-makers exclusively from groups that are under-represented in the film and television sector.
