A sensual and poetic story of an “amour fou”, with great actors and stunning visuals.
Kate Perkin, a single woman in her early thirties, works in a benefits office in the English coastal town of Ramsgate. The job is at once tedious and fraught; Kate escapes by googling idyllic holiday locations. A moment of flirtation with a male claimant initially seems like a mere blip in her routine. But when the man shows up to meet her at the end of her working day, Kate finds herself propelled headlong into a liaison that displaces every other priority in her life.
