Suzy is a British soldier who returns home from a hearts-and-minds mission in Iraq. Deeply affected by her experience, she struggles to settle back into civilian life. Her attempts to get reacquainted with her young daughter, who initially barely recognises her, are draining, while her insecure squaddie husband Mark is threatened by both her choice of career and her choice of company. The feature debut from Brian Welsh is an urgent, provocative and timely piece of social realism that marks him out as an emerging talent in British cinema. Joanne Froggatt (Downtown Abbey) is spellbinding in the lead role; delivering a performance of raw emotional honesty.
