Set in the 1980s, the heart of the story is the relationship between a mother, her daughter and the music of Morrissey and The Smiths. Gina is a young mother attempting to play the role of homemaker providing a stable and loving home to husband Keith and daughter Alice. However, Gina develops ‘De Clerambault Syndrome’ in which she imagines grand passions on behalf of others and reads secret meanings into ordinary conversations. A heart-warming universal comedy that focuses on the life of an unusual family in rural England; addressing mental health issues and their impact on the family – in a frank, sometimes stark, but equally funny and affirming way.
