Starring John Hurt and Emily Barcleay, this story follows eleven-year old Lou, whose life was turned upside-down when her father walked out on her mother and two sisters.
Lou retreats from the world, afraid to let anyone hurt her again, even her own mother who she blames for the break-up. That all changes when her estranged grandfather, Doyle, moves into the family home, bringing the chaos of his befuddled mind with him. After being mistaken by Doyle for his long departed wife, Lou plays along out of curiosity. Soon his warmth and trust melt her heart, showing her what it is to be loved again.
