A Bump Along The Way
A charming and authentic Derry-set film about family and the unexpected challenges life throws at us all.
When Pamela (Bronagh Gallagher), a free-spirited, fun-loving, 44-year-old single mother becomes pregnant following a one-night stand, she is shocked! But not as shocked (and horrified) as her straightlaced teenage daughter Ally (Lola Petticrew), who finds her mother’s behaviour embarrassing at the best of times.
As both women have to come to terms with the impending new arrival, they are forced to face some home truths about themselves and each other. Pamela is pushed to finally stand up for herself against a bullying ex, as well as her judgemental daughter and the baby’s dad, while Ally faces an identity crisis and the awkard twists and turns of first love.
