Plagued by doubt, fear and exhaustion, young mother Tara is living a life that is no longer hers. Dedicated to, but defined by her two children and her overworked, under-appreciative husband, she longs for a change from her numbing daily routine. Tip-toeing on the edge of desperation, Tara takes a bold leap in a new direction and buys a one-way ticket to Paris.

Featuring a truly remarkable central performance from Gemma Arterton, this is a courageous portrait of the complexities of motherhood.
