Synopsis:

With life not turning out as expected, Emma’s struggles with addiction have put her on the fringes of nothing. When an encounter with an old friend sparks a drug-induced trip down memory lane, she suddenly awakes on the day of her mother’s funeral some 16 years prior. Faced with the reality that the trauma of losing her mum to the same addiction that may soon consume her has set her on the path to her current state, can Emma convince her younger self that everything is going to be okay? 

Mary -

Grandmother of Emma on her mother’s side, Mary is a sweet woman with a heart of gold, but the loss of her daughter has left her feeling like she has no real right to intervene in her granddaughter and son-in-law's life anymore. With a set of values born from a bygone era, Mary believes in a stiff upper lip and that, if she can find a smile through the tears of grief, then so can the rest of us. Mary’s unwavering faith in her granddaughter’s future has fooled her into thinking she is infallible, making the moments in which Emma needs her more than ever painfully blinded.
