A socially awkward and environmentally conscious misfit meets a carefree lifeguard in director Marley Morrison's comedy-drama which has drawn comparisons with My So Called Life and Juno.

Following AJ’s (Nell Barrow) suspension from school, mum Tina (Jo Hartley) has dragged AJ out of her bedroom and driven four hours to the family’s favourite coastal holiday park in Dorset. Joining them is AJ’s neurotic and heavily pregnant older sister and her foot-rubbing, attentive boyfriend as well as their curious younger sister.

For AJ, the only thing worse than spending an entire week with her uniquely ‘un-woke’ family, is being in a holiday cabin with no Wi-Fi. She’s determined to have the worst week of her life, but her plan comes unstuck when she meets Isla (Ella-Rae Smith) who sees through AJ’S uniquely adopted persona.
