    • Synopsis
    • Justine doesn’t think much of life, nor does she particularly want to partake in it. Numbing the pain of past hurts with alcohol, giving nothing away at her court-appointed therapy sessions, she seems content to spend her days with her pothead friend Peach, not thinking of a future she doesn’t think she deserves to have. Then she meets the idealistic Rachel and suddenly Justine is faced with someone who can see past her arrogant swagger – someone who wants to love Justine despite all the reasons she shouldn’t. Perhaps life isn’t so bad after all. But can a new love like theirs repair a lifetime of hurt? This Brighton-set drama is a powerful rumination on how the past can shape the present.
