What happens when a woman feels the need to change her life In the southern United States, a sudden tragedy leads seemingly typical young newlywed Peggy (Ashley Shelton) to abandon her businessman husband (Bryce Johnson), her friends and her career as a real-estate agent and embark on a search for a more meaningful life. In his unpredictable, moving and totally refreshing feature directorial debut, Paul Harrill (director of the Sundance-award-winning short Gina) reveals a unique sensibility and a passion for human transformation.

#1/ Thursday 19 June, 2014 / 23:28 GMTWhen things aren't right, it may take a few turns to find out but you will and equally it takes space and time to find out what is right for you. It is OK, it is life. Love it.
#2 / Saturday 21 June, 2014 / 23:27 GMTIt took a long time to get on side with Margaret the main character but I did near the end and then I wanted the story to continue disappointed that it was ending. I was mystified re her husband, they didn't talk, kiss or touch, and he even ignored her cry for help when she was having a miscarriage on her own in the restaurant toilet, in what sense was he her husband? He was cold, distant, unbelievable, but I found it impossible to confront the writer and director at the Q&A as it was a major criticism and he was so obviously proud of his work.
