Feature Film - written by Dorothy Jane Stewart and directed by Paul Sng
When a disgraced, alcoholic doctor meets a pregnant teenager suffering domestic abuse, they embark on a relationship which could lead to redemption, but at devastating cost to them both.
A black comedy that explores addiction, recovery, male violence and coercion.
Yvonne and Cheryl - two lonely and damaged people trapped in very different situations, who find hope, solace and redemption in each other.
Tone wise, it sits between Andrea Arnold’s Fish Tank and Lynne Ramsay’s Ratcatcher and the emotionally raw explorations of friendship explored in Ali and Ava and Withnail & I.
With this script - writer Dorothy Jane Stewart won the 3rd Wscripted Cannes Screenplay List, an initiative launched in partnership with Mubi and awarded at Cannes 2023.
