Synopsis

Daphne is in her early thirties, living in London, working at a restaurant and spending her free time exploring the city’s nightlife. Reluctant to contemplate anything as grown up as “settling down”, but lacking direction or purpose, her lively persona masks insecurity and loneliness. One night, she is witness to a violent attack in a local convenience store. Initially shrugging it off, the event gradually becomes the catalyst for her to re-evaluate her priorities. This emotionally raw British film has a sharp ear and acute understanding for the modern language and anxieties of young urban people. The story also examines the illicit temptations a big city can provide, with a flawed, empathetic, but always likeable character at its heart.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
