This wee gem of an Irish film follows the changing dynamic between a neuroscientist, a carpenter who suffers a stroke, and his anxious wife. Conor Casey’s stroke leaves him mentally challenged and Maxine struggles to keep their family together in the difficult times. She finds herself further exasperated by the arrival of Doctor Ted Fielding, who has a grant to observe Conor in his home environment. Maxine and Ted eventually begin to bond over their mutual concern for Conor, although others around them think they may be getting too close.

Directed by Academy award nominee Steph Green and starring Maxine Peake, Edward MacLiam and Will Forte.
