Grappling with the unexpected death of her husband, Mary (Joanna Scalan) is tidying his things in their Dover home when she discovers he hides a secret across the Channel in Calais. Beautifully written and directed by former Screen Star of Tomorrow and BAFTA nominated Aleem Khan, this debut feature subtly expresses the delicacy and tenderness of two women who live just over 20 miles apart, profoundly separated by cultural difference but also unexpectedly connected.
One of only five films to receive the Cannes Critics’ Week 2020 label, also selected at the Telluride Film Festival.
