Synopsis:

Author Helen Walsh makes a striking debut as writer/director of this powerful new British drama set against the backdrop of the grim Cheshire housing estates. Two dysfunctional girls – Shelly (Lauren McQueen) and Rachel (Brogan Ellis) – from very different backgrounds meet and set off on a course that will have profound implications for both of them. A visceral and powerful debut film with more than a few twists along the way.
