Synopsis

Mental illness, Morrissey and guinea pigs. The story of an unusual family in 1980s rural England.
Set to the songs of The Smiths, the film centres on Gina, a young woman Gina, whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health. Things deteriorate when she develops an obsession with the local weatherman, which leads to an admission to the nearby psychiatric hospital. Over the years, as she grows up, her daughter Alice struggles to relate to her heavily medicated mum, and causes chaos when she comes up with a plan to reconnect with her.
Based on the novel by Jo Brand
