The Closer We Get

The Closer We Get - Glasgow Screening

After her mother Ann suffers a devastating stroke, Karen moves back home for what will be a long goodbye. But Karen isn't the only one who comes back to care for Ann in the crisis: Her prodigal father - the endearing yet unfathomable Ian, who’s been separated from Ann for years - also reappears. Reunited so unexpectedly, and armed with her camera, Karen seizes this last chance to find out the real story of her family and the truth behind a secret her father had tried - and failed - to keep from them all before it’s too late. Candour, warmth and much unexpected humour bring to life both an extraordinary story and a profound portrait of family survival.
