Set in present day London, Jackie (Nadine Marshall) is pregnant and knows it’s not her husband’s (Idris Elba). She says she hasn’t slept with anybody else, now she doesn’t know if she is losing her mind. Communication, trust and intimacy are at the heart of this warm, fearless family drama as Jackie struggles to explain news of her pregnancy. Over the course of a year the film follows Jackie, husband Mark and their 11 year old son JJ (Kai Francis Lewis) as this ordinary family struggles for answers as accusations start to fly.


4 STARS, Time Out
“Idris Elba gives a powerful performance in an impressive homegrown slice-of-life drama that’s tinged with unease and strangeness.”
