A beautiful and thoroughly heartbreaking story of two people who cannot seem to escape bullying, and the terrible strain it puts on them and their relationship.
Super close mother Lyn and daughter Iona (Joanna Scanlan and Lily Newmark) - Dafty One and Dafty Two - are excited for their new life in a new town. Determined to make a success of things after a tricky start, Iona becomes 'best friends' with three girls, who act more like frenemies than friends. Used to being Iona's bestie herself, Lyn feels left out, so also makes a friend with Belinda (Chanel Cresswell), her neighbour - who won't give Lyn her stepladders back. Lyn and Iona pretend to each other that things are going great, both retreating into fantasy and lies. You will fall in love with these endearing characters. You will laugh at their quirkiness, cheer for their triumphs, and cry for their suffering.
