Juha, a grieving heart surgeon, is unable to connect with those around him, including his teenage daughter. While taking her to a piercing parlour for her 16th birthday, he accidentally stumbles into the sex dungeon downstairs and meets Mona, a mysterious dominatrix who plunges him into a playful world. Featuring some graphic BDSM scenes, this heartfelt and joyfully sex-positive romcom with a squeamish streak was a big hit in the 2019’s BFI London Film Festival in the Dare strand.

Tickets £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less)
