The Moffatts’ sick young daughter Franny almost died in October, and so the family held a fake Christmas for her. Today is December 25th and Franny is still alive but the rest of the family have fallen apart.
Written and Directed by Hope Dickson Leach
Produced by Geraldine Patten

Funded by Film London and the UKFC New Cinema Fund, as part of the Pulse Plus Scheme.
I met Kerry Fox at a friend’s party and finally got the (dutch) courage to go up to her and tell her what an enormous fan of her’s I was. Probably quite embarrassing for all involved. Luckily she remembered that when I wrote to ask her to be in my film. Best thing I ever did, drinking those three glasses of wine.
