Life. Don’t ever water it down.Starring Charlotte Rampling, Marton Csokas and George Ferrier. Sam (17) has been on a self-destructive spiral. He returns home from boarding school to find his gin-soaked wheelchair-bound English grandmother, Ruth, has moved in. Ruth is an ex-war photographer with a lust for life and a love of the bottle. Their first meeting is awkward; their second violent. Things get worse when Sam finds himself stranded alone with her and her nurse Sarah for the school holidays. A battle of supremacy ensues with each of them discovering how to embrace life again.
