Description:
  A powerful coming-of-age drama following a daughter, her mother and her wayward younger brother as their relationship reaches critical mass.

A portrait of modern Britain seen through the eyes of a family in crisis which shines a spotlight on issues affecting marginal communities, including young carers, mental illness, and national identity.

Two for Joy is an authentic and unwavering, ultimately uplifting coming of age story; a visceral, moving exploration of one British family’s life. Mother AISHA, her teenage daughter VI and young adolescent son TROY, are at a crossroads in their lives.

Director Statement:

My aim from the outset was to create a picture that was as beautiful as it was heartbreaking - from the first draft to the final cut I’ve tried to create a visceral and honest portrayal of a British family struggle to navigate their way through grief in the years following their father's death. The film deals with some serious, British, topical themes that have been short-changed by the government, and under-represented on our screens - mental illness, young carers, child abuse, and bereavement.
