Here's a film with a plot-line straight out of a hysterical soap opera, but so brilliantly acted and directed that the result is entirely un-gooey. Sarah, a gallery intern in her early twenties, collapses at work. When taken to hospital for tests, she's shocked to learn that she is six months pregnant. Her reaction is apparently one of breezy avoidance, but underneath it's a different story, and as b-day approaches Sarah must confront the reality of her impending maternity. Tough, uncompromising and absolutely heartbreaking. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
