FOR her directorial debut, Samantha Morton has teamed with celebrated writer Tony Grisoni (In This World, Brothers of the Head) and producer Kate Ogborn of Revolution Films to create a powerful drama and a deeply personal account of a young girl struggling to survive in a hostile world. Lucy is eleven years old. Neglected by both her parents, she ends up being placed in a children’s home. Through her eyes, we follow Lucy’s struggle to cope with the system. Her saving is her self-belief and her certainty that she is being watched over and protected by the holy spirit; hers is a heroic quest for love, beauty and transcendence.
