Plot & Details
Brenda Blethyn and Timothy Spall headline this family drama inspired by the true story of two parents whose adult daughter suffers from an unknown ailment that makes her behavior highly erratic, and occasionally destructive. Bill and Wendy Ainscow love their daughter Lisa (Rebekah Staton) unconditionally, but that doesn't mean that she's easy to live with. Lisa suffers from an undetermined mental illness that leaves her prone to emotional outburst, compulsive spending, and open hostility, all of which have made life excruciatingly difficult for her increasingly desperate parents. When Britain's mental health services declare that Lisa is well enough to live at home, her parents are forced to resort to desperate measures in order to ensure that their troubled daughter is given the best care possible.
