Inspired by the life and artistic output of Sunderland-born avant-garde artist Audrey Amiss, this stirring drama imagines a transformative road trip journey between Amiss (Monica Dolan, Appropriate Adult) and her psychiatric nurse Sandra (Kelly Macdonald, Line of Duty).

Driving North with her portfolio to secure an open call exhibition slot before its deadline, the Thelma and Louise duo embark on an emotional pilgrimage – one which will bring Audrey face-to-face with her past, in the form of a momentous reunion with her estranged sister Dorothy (Gina McKee, Our Friends in the North).

This compassionate reclamation of the incredible work of an unfairly overlooked artist is a moving, tactfully drawn testament to Audrey Amiss’ legacy, deftly weaving fact and fiction as it explores Amiss not only as a visionary artistic talent, but as a self-described mental health survivor. Celebrated director Carol Morley’s extensive research of her journals and archive collection make this a worthy cinematic tribute to Amiss, brought to the screen with the support of Academy Award winning executive producer Jane Campion.
