During a sticky patch in her marriage, 40-year-old Anna spends a summer holiday with her friend Verena and her new husband George at their Tuscan villa, but ends up hanging out with the couple's teen-aged children and their cousin, with whom she develops a flirtatious affinity. After a romantic rejection, she decides to tell on the youngsters, revealing some mischief, that ends in a huge scene between George and his son. Observing family life as an outsider, an “unrelated,” Anna ultimately engages in a brave self-criticism, reevaluating her entire life.

Joanna Hogg

Joanna Hogg began to incessantly shoot experimental Super 8 films after borrowing a camera from her mentor Derek Jarman. She went on to study direction at the National School of Film and Television and her graduation piece Caprice starred a then-unknown Tilda Swinton. Hogg’s depiction of unarguably middle-class characters has prompted some commentators to see her work as spearheading a new type of social realism in British film. In 2019, the Thessaloniki IFF presented a tribute to her work.
