"There's a strong basis of originality here, and the warmth and good nature of the movie carries it along."
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"Recalling the verité style of 2018's Rosie, this is an inspiring tale in which planning permission and health-and-safety issues provide all-too-real hurdles amid the domestic drama."
★★★★ Andrew Collins, Radio Times

"If there is a lot of "happy coincidence" driving the plot, Dunne gets away with it by constructing this tale of female resilience and community from the ground up, through well-observed moments between mother and daughters."
★★★★ Amber Wilkinson, The Times 

Sandra (Dunne), on the surface of it, is a young Mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a warm, safe, happy home to grow up in. Beneath the surface, Sandra has a steely determination to change their lives for the better and when it becomes clear that the local council won’t provide that home, she decides to build it herself from scratch.

With very little income to speak of and no savings, Sandra must use all her ingenuity to make her ambitious dream a reality.  At the same time, she must escape the grip of her possessive ex-husband and keep him away from her and her girls. The lionhearted Sandra draws together a community of friends to support her and lend a helping hand and it is the kindness and generosity of these people and the love of her young daughters that help rebuild her own strength and sense of self.
