19:15: Audience Q&A
Mother and daughter Grace and Ama have established a deep bond that’s protected them from outsiders, but as they try to settle in Glasgow, things begin to change. Ama’s approaching adolescence and growing curiosity set off reminders of a past that Grace has been trying to erase. The comforting fairytale-like story that Grace has been telling Ama for years is shaken by the memories — their sheltered world begins to erode from the inside. To give them both a chance to really start living, Grace has to let Ama grow up.
The film will release in the UK and Ireland on 24th November.
