The Party's Just Beginning
In the Highlands of Scotland, a girl suffers the suicide of her best friend. In a town renowned for it’s growing suicide rate, she spirals into a mid-twenties crisis.
Witty and sarcastic, her manner is rapid and quick fire. If only someone could hear her hilarity. She can’t seem to connect with anyone and her awareness of mortality consumes her.
She forms relationships with various men in attempts to find herself again. She meets a man simultaneously enduring a mid-life crisis and she develops an anonymous connection with an old man over the phone who is at the end of his own life.
None of them give her the answers she needs and ultimately, she is left to confront herself, and what's truly haunting her.
Written and directed by Karen Gillan, this surreal coming of age tale is her love letter to her hometown.
