Maria Jenkins is an ordinary woman who has single-handedly raised her nine-year-old daughter, Lilly.

 

When the police turn up at Maria’s front door, she knows why they are there and ultimately, she'll have to confront her darkest secret.

Synopsis

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

This film’s foundation started with my own personal experience between me and my mum and how I didn’t get to say goodbye to her.

 

Even though the situation in the film is completely different to true life, the essence of the story is the same. When my mum was 40 and I was 7, she died of breast cancer. I was never told she was sick. No one sat me down and explained the situation to me and while everyone got to say their last goodbyes to her, I was sent away and never got that. I carried this anger around with me for years until I discovered filmmaking.

 

This story is one of many I have written that I have used to express certain emotions. In short, this story is the goodbye I never got in real life.

Writer & Director of Mockingbird
