Synopsis

Inspired by the critically acclaimed theatre play by Rita Kalnejais

A bittersweet comedy. What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life, as Henry and Anna realize their seriously ill teen daughter Milla has just fallen madly in love with a drug dealer, Moses. This romance is Milla’s protective parents’ worst nightmare — but Milla doesn’t want to play it safe anymore. Things get messy and morals go out the window, as the lives of those around the family — their disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour, a brilliantly flawed music teacher, a child violin prodigy and Moses’ family — become intertwined.
