Description

Single, in her mid-forties and having experienced a sudden early menopause, a realisation comes to Peggy quietly, and clearly: she decides to adopt a child. But the preparation is arduous and the scrutiny intense.

There are questions about past lives, about capability and expectations. Asking big questions about identity and belonging, as well as about what makes a mother – and a home – this is a beautiful meditation on how the legacies of childhood might be overcome by a mother’s determination to love.
