Synopsis:
What to do when your seriously ill teenage daughter falls madly in love with a young drug dealer? This is the dilemma that Henry (Ben Mendelsohn) and Anna (Essie Davis) face when their beloved Milla (Eliza Scanlen) meets the dodgy-but-charming Toby (Toby Wallace). On paper, this is a premise for a sicklysweet YA drama, but in director Shannon Murphy’s hands this debut gorgeously walks a fine line between provocative adult drama and sweet teen romance.

The nature of Milla’s illness is not discussed, it’s the unnatural state of being young and diseased that’s the central point that challenges and ultimately unites the family. Some of Australia’s finest screen talent shine in a film that has both the feverishness of first love and the visceral intensity of impending grief.
