Thirty-one-year-old Daphne (Emily Beecham, INTO THE BADLANDS) is unable to shake off the dregs of a quarter-life crisis, caught up in the oscillating monotony and unpredictability of daily life. She has a semi-unfulfilling job, her nights out never seem to end well and her overbearing mother (Geraldine James) is recovering from cancer. Daphne's sharp wit and devil-may-care attitude keep everyone around her smiling, but deep down she's unhappy. When she witnesses a stabbing, Daphne must admit that she needs to make a change. Scottish director Peter Mackie Burns creates a nuanced and empathetic character study, combining self-effacing comedy with the heartfelt story of a woman's journey toward self-realization.
