Winning Best Film at the Cannes World Film Festival 2023, this heaven-sent feature will make its UK debut on 15 April, courtesy of Miracle Media.

Life is far from straightforward for Aine (James), a teenager growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, in Portrush, Northern Ireland. The upcoming school play is the least of Aine’s worries. Not only must she grapple with religion, suicidal thoughts and help care for her terminally ill grandmother (Kathy Deehan)… but she is also expecting a baby.

As she attempts to navigate her pregnancy and move on with her life – she relies heavily on those around her, including hardworking mother Margaret (Amanda Doherty – The Fall), supportive drama teacher Ellie (Winstone), Father Reitel (Glover) and best friends Leo (Tod Bell) and Corinna (Ania Lee Lyes).
