Aki Omoshaybi’s deeply felt debut takes an honest look at young couple Jamie (Pippa Bennett-Warner) and Kyle (Omoshaybi), as they struggle to manage personal hardship at the start of their blossoming relationship. Jamie leads the charge with quiet tenacity as a mother determined to create a stable environment for her young son. In tandem, Kyle puts the need to battle his own demons on hold and is willing to beg, steal or borrow to impress his new love. The growing intimacy between the pair is captured beautifully through Omoshaybi’s naturalistic lens, offering a slice of British life that, despite its challenges, manages to glow.
