Told in her own words - mixing narrative with magical realism, inspired by the landscape of Johnshaven.

The film owes alot to my two collaborators - Scottish cinematographer David Liddell and Keith Wright who edited the film.

I look for a compelling story and Alison’s (and her character) really resonated with me: Her spirit, her art and her eloquence. She was willing to bare her soul. And I think deep down
her experience of illness touched something raw within me in relation to my Mum and Dad.
