This film is a snapshot of a mother daughter relationship when the mother suddenly becomes unnecessary . All mothers pour their souls into their children without thought for themselves. One day suddenly we are discarded, and nobody ever talks about the loss, or the woman who has been left behind. We are left with a trashed house, a dog who's 105 and the onset of the menopause. It's a clash of the hormones, and we know who wins.
I became fixated with telling my own story, after a hugely successful short film called "what happened to Evie" winner at Galway Film Festival 2018, starring both my daughter and I.
