This sweet, sad drama sees a teacher keen to be a mother bonding with her new boyfriend’s daughter, while dealing with the constant presence of his ex.

In Detail

Rachel, a single woman in her late 30s who is a teacher, a demanding, rewarding job that she loves.

Rachel has had a chequered dating history; she is worried about her ticking biological clock. She meets and falls for Ali whose young daughter Leila she must also win over if the relationship is to last. The presence of Ali’s ex and Leila’s mother strains the relationship further. Rather than generalising about childless women, this is a sensitively felt and deceptively nuanced exploration of one woman’s experience with motherhood.

A gentle, heartfelt relationship drama about – and for – intelligent adults.
