Event/ The screening on Sat 25 Nov at 18:00 will be followed by a Q&A with director Adura Onashile and freelance film host Esther Lisk-Carew. This special screening will be exempt from our Film Pass, but all other screenings will be eligible for use.
Mother and daughter Grace and Ama have established a deep bond that’s protected them from outsiders, but as they try to settle in Glasgow, things begin to change.
Ama’s approaching adolescence and growing curiosity set off reminders of a past that Grace has been trying to erase.
The comforting fairytale-like story that Grace has been telling Ama for years is shaken by the memories — their sheltered world begins to erode from the inside.
To give them both a chance to really start living, Grace has to let Ama grow up.
