“Owen McCafferty’s script is moving because the dialogue and situations seem so ordinary. But the two actors bring depth and compassion to their characters.” – Glenn Sumi, NOW Toronto

“An achingly intimate portrait of a marriage weathering a storm, the third feature from directing team Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn (Good Vibrations) is anything but ordinary.” – Wendy Ide, Screen International

Joan and Tom (Academy Award ® nominee Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson) have been married for many years. An everyday couple with a remarkable love, there’s an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a lifetime together. When Joan is diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their enduring devotion, as they must find the humour and grace to survive a year of adversity.
