Fifteen-year-old Sarah has to keep her family afloat. As the sole caregiver to her family and manic-depressive mother, she juggles looking after her younger siblings and a part-time job with her school work. Affected by her difficult circumstances and bullying by students, she is often told-off by teachers for being rude and gobby. Spotting potential untapped talent, her drama teacher encourages her to turn her insults and quick-temper into stand-up comedy, leading Sarah to find a creative outlet for the chaos in her life. But her preparation for the school’s showcase is disturbed when her family’s financial circumstances become a priority. The film explores some tough issues that are at times highly distressing to watch and should be approached with caution and sensitivity. However it also gives valuable insight into some of the difficulties faced by young carers from working-class backgrounds and highlights the possibilities of creativity as a platform for self-expression.
Very strong language, strong sex references, and a scene of strong, disturbing sexual violence.
