Mother and daughter Grace and Ama have a deep bond that’s protected them from outsiders, but as they try to settle in Glasgow, things begin to change.
The comforting fairytale-like story of her past that Grace has been telling her daughter for years is shaken, as Ama's approaching adolescence, and growing curiosity, set off memories that her mother has been trying to erase.
As their sheltered world begins to erode from the inside, to give them both a chance to really start living, Grace has to let Ama grow up.
With stunning central performances, Girl is a tender drama that follows the story of a deeply connected mother and daughter.
