    • Synopsis
    • Luke (Steven Brandon), a young man with Down's syndrome who prizes his independence, is forced into a care home after the death of his mother. There he rails against the restrictions imposed on him, but his frustrations are allayed by his budding friendships with his care-worker Eve (Shana Swash) and a mysterious feral girl (Pixie Le Knot).

      Debut director Jane Gull has crafted a sensitive, poignant and creditably naturalistic drama that lingers in the memory; anchored around Brandon's superb lead performance.
