+ LIVE intro by director Jamie Patterson

Justine, is a young woman with a fierce intelligence but an equally strong appetite for self-destruction. Along with her only friend Peach, she finds herself suffocated within a world that makes little sense and where alcohol is the only escape from her view of a hopeless future. Her probation officer Leanne and her doctor try to guide her back into society, but Justine understands all too well what that society can offer her and she doesn't want to play by its rules. When she meets Rachel, the possibility of happiness, love and a future starts to emerge, but her pain goes deep and as the demons within her begin to surface, she wonders if she can allow herself to hope.
