About the Event
11-year-old Sophie (Frankie Corio) treasures time spent with her loving father Calum (Paul Mescal) on holiday. Beyond her eye, Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood. Twenty years later, Sophie’s recollections of their last holiday become a heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.
