SUE (52), works in a library. DANIEL (15), eats crisps and listens to Metallica.

This was the summer Daniel was due to spend with his father and his father’s new wife in Florida. But when they cancel his trip at the last minute, Sue and Daniel suddenly face the prospect of six long weeks together.

Over the course of one long summer, an epic war of wills rages in the unassuming battleground of their suburban home as Sue and Daniel reckon with private tragedies – and pursue their personal passions.

Based on Joff Winterhart’s award-winning graphic novel and featuring a score by Belle & Sebastian, this is a beautifully observed, universal coming-of-age story capturing all the tension, pathos and affection of family life.
