About the Movie
Richard (Scott Chambers) 15 with learning difficulties, longs to put down roots but his restless and destructive brother, Polly (Morgan Watkins) needs to keep moving. When the land they live on is bought by a new landowner, and the electricity supply to their caravan is cut, their already precarious living conditions get even worse. Then a chance meeting with the new landowner's daughter, 17 year old Annabel (Yasmin Paige), leaves Richard besotted; whilst Polly befriends the guys who run a seedy traveling fair. Richard's optimistic view on life becomes increasingly difficult to maintain as Polly's abusive behaviour worsens, family secrets are revealed, and he is torn between loyalty to his brother and his first true friend in Annabel. For better or worse, Richard's life is about to change forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A grand mixture of dark and light, that's not afraid to discuss tough topics in a refreshing way.
Fresh: Stephenson elicits lively, empathic performances from his small cast. Chambers is a particular standout, as a character just that tiny bit irritating enough to skirt feeling like the standard-issue movie martyr.
Fresh: An enjoyable, involving British drama with an impressive turn from newcomer Scott Chambers.
Fresh: A confident debut with a gorgeous central performance.
