Alice’s life is turned upside-down when she finds out that her husband hasn’t been paying their mortgage the last year; instead, he’s used all their money on prostitutes. When the bank threatens them with eviction, Alice decides to sell sex to make money for herself and her son. She soon discovers that the seemingly desperate solution, in fact, can be empowering. Actress Emilie Piponnier alternates effortlessly between a wide range of emotions and gives an emphatic and honest interpretation of a mother who takes unorthodox choices.
Director Josephine Mackerras has made a refreshing debut film which sheds light on sexist double standards, the film winning the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
