A critically acclaimed and thought-provoking one-off drama
Ellen follows a difficult teenage girl trying to take control of her life in a world that would rather ignore her. But she finds a sense of hope when she meets Kayla and they form a deep and powerful friendship. With Kayla, Ellen discovers a kindness and joy that had been lacking in her life. But her home life is chaotic: she’s neglected by her mum, hardly sees her dad, and is at risk at falling through the cracks while around her dark forces lurk. Will anyone be able to save her? Funny, poignant and devastatingly sad, this film is about the challenges facing a young girl living in poverty and gives a voice to those that so often goes unheard.
