Ray (Ariane Labed) is an Olympian, a synchronised swimmer who at 30 still lives at home. She’s spent little time doing anything but training, and when an accident knocks her confidence, she becomes aware just how limiting her life choices look. Answering an ad for a lodger by a cash-strapped couple, Gemma and Kieran (Thalissa Teixeira and Gary Carr), she moves in. The three immediately clock an instant, electric attraction. It makes all of them very excited, but also very nervous. With a sharp script from Macmillan and Woods, and an enchanting central trio of actors with wicked chemistry, Tsangari (Attenberg, Chevalier) immediately has you hooked. This delightful London-set drama explores a romantic relationship between three people… it’s love without a map, and a whole lot of road blocks.
