Synopsis
A portrait of troubled British playwright Andrea Dunbar and her tumultuous relationship with her daughter. Andrea wrote honestly and unflinchingly about her upbringing on the notorious Buttershaw Estate. When she died, tragically at the age of 29 in 1990, her daughter Lorraine was just ten years old. Now 29 years old, Lorraine is currently ostracized from Buttershaw and in prison, serving a sentence for manslaughter for the death of her son. While being rehabilitated in prison, Lorraine is re-introduced to her mother's plays and private letters, and as she reflects on the parallels in their lives, she begins to come to terms with her role in the death of her son.
