Single mum Andrea Dunbar found fame writing about what she knew, delighting audiences with her frank and witty plays inspired by her life on a tough Bradford council estate. But personal tragedy overshadowed her theatrical success, ending with her death aged just 29. This poignant docu-drama combines fact and fiction to explore her extraordinary story and the devastating impact it had on the children she left behind - particularly her mixed-race daughter, Lorraine. In an inventive move, actors lip-synch to recorded interviews with Dunbar's family and friends, while archive footage gives the playwright her own voice. This inventive and powerful film is an example of British cinema at its best.
