Professional dancer and choreographer Charlotte (Bobbi Jene Smith) is preparing for a new show. Everything is going well, until she receives a call: Mari, her grandmother, is dying. Putting her life in London temporarily on hold, Charlotte leaves to support her mother and sister, despite the tensions that linger over the family’s strained relationships.

Featuring sequences choreographed by Maxine Doyle, and an evocative score by Peter Gregson, Georgia Parris’ genre-defying dance-drama is a love letter to mother-daughter relationships and the difficult choices we make to preserve them.
