Co-produced by UK companies Embankment Films and Ingenious Media, this affable drama-comedy is impeccably directed by Irish filmmaker Emer Reynolds. Oscar-winning and renowned British actor Olivia Colman gives a standout performance as the complicated but very likeable Joy, while the stunning scenery of Ireland’s County Derry forms the backdrop for this poignant story.





After fleeing his father, twelve-year-old Mully (Charlie Reid) steals a taxi only to find Joy (Olivia Colman) in the back seat with a baby. After learning she’s decided to give her child away to a friend, the complicated mother and a troubled adolescent go on a journey across Ireland, as they begin to build an unlikely but charming bond.
