"Epic" The Guardian

"Remarkable" Time Out London

"A heartbreaking reminder that there is no such thing as an ordinary life" The Herald

Our multi award-winning BBC-broadcast fourth documentary is an auto-biographical tale of loyalty, broken dreams and redemption.
Director Karen's mother Ann suffers a stroke that draws her daughter home to Scotland to help care for her. But Karen isn't the only one who returns: her prodigal father Ian also reappears.
Karen seizes this last chance to come to terms with the aftermath of a secret her father had tried - and failed - to keep, and finds Ann's stroke has thrown them all a life raft.
