Joy, a straight-talking solicitor who didn’t expect to get pregnant, is struggling with motherhood and is planning to give her baby to a friend who will raise the child as her own. She joins Mully on a wild journey across Ireland, stealing cars, hitch-hiking, catching ferries and breaking police barricades. Mully’s father is in hot pursuit, and Joy is desperate to escape and leave her life behind. These two outlaws gradually bond, discovering that both felt unloved by their parents, yet both have a lot of love to give. Together, they find a happier way to journey through life – and find love in each other.

Olivia Colman embodies a complex and messy woman feeling around the outer edges of motherhood and Charlie Reid is an incredible new talent.

Please note: A Birth Certificate must be provided as proof of the baby's age in order to register for Kino Bambino screenings. These screenings are designed only for parents and guardians and their babies under one year old, and only those with a Kino Bambino membership card will be admitted. (We are aware that Sheffield City Council are currently facing a delay in birth registrations. During this period, we are happy to register babies for our Kino Bambino memberships without the usual proof of Birth Certificate.)
