' A delicate, beautifully calibrated film. ' Coky Giedroyc
' There is much to love about every aspect of Barraclough’s observation on love, loss and fleeting moments of illusory bliss. The whole thing plays out like someone’s idealised, glimmering memories from years ago, the actual event of which was less than poetic.' Indie Shorts Mag

"You said you always wore orange because your name was Clementine, and that I didn’t, because it was mine."
Clem is returning to her childhood home.
After almost seven years away, it is not only the funeral of her once stepfather that is bringing her back,
but what she is running away from and who she is returning to; her old step-sister Clémentine.
The women haven’t seen each other since they were separated, but what tore them apart as teenagers is now pulling Clem back.
