CGiii Comment

Kitchen sink and grime.

There is a remarkable humanity mixed in with the decrepit - a warmth created by a memory, a decency invented out of necessity.

A mesmerising look into the past.

The(ir) Blurb...

Jane, a young French woman, pregnant and unmarried, takes a room in a seedy London boarding house, which is inhabited by an assortment of misfits. She considers getting an abortion, but is unhappy with this solution. She falls into a relationship with Toby, a struggling young writer who lives on the first floor. Eventually she comes to like her odd room, and makes friends with all the strange people in the house. But she still faces two problems: what to do with her baby, and what to do with Toby.
