Event Description

This brief but powerful debut feature from writer/director Cathy Brady tells the story of two sisters who grew up on the Irish border. Kelly, played with deft intensity and realism by Nika McGuigan, was missing, believed dead. Her sudden return home reignites a strong bond between her and her estranged sister Lauren, performed with equal force by Nora Jane-Noone.

At first, Lauren struggles with Kelly’s unpredictability, fuelled no doubt by the forces of mental illness that plagued their late mother. However, as their bond intensifies, it becomes increasingly difficult for the sisters to repress historic resentments. The legacies of the past slowly entangle the sisters in a complex interpersonal and historical web, and they soon find themselves on a collision course with everyone around them.

Cathy Brady’s debut is both a masterclass in tension and the dark side of sisterly relations. It is a film about troubled histories, both personal and political, and how in fractious places, they can intertwine with devastating results.
