Fun-loving, single mom Pamela (Bronagh Gallagher, THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD) knows how to have a good time - and she's not about to let a little thing like middle age stop her. Her teenage daughter Allegra (Lola Petticrew, winner of the New Talent Award at the 2019 Galway Film Fleadh) is the sensible one, focused on schoolwork, veganism and keeping up appearances among the small community in Derry. When Pamela has a fling with a stranger 20 years her junior and accidentally gets pregnant, Allegra is scandalized. But once the shock wears off, the imminent arrival of the family's third member prompts a curious reversal: while Pamela becomes a health-conscious homebody, Allegra makes new friends, jazzes up her wardrobe and takes a shot at being a party girl. Mother and daughter swing to opposite extremes; if they can meet in the middle, they might just discover reserves of love and resourcefulness neither knew they had. 95 min
