Two For Joy
Two For Joy is an authentic and unwavering, ultimately uplifting coming of age story; a visceral moving exploration of one British family’s life. Mother, Aisha, her teenage daughter Vi and young adolescent son Troy, are at a crossroads in their lives. Aisha’s depression is bringing them all close to the brink. Vi has been forced to grow up fast, mother-daughter roles are reversed, Vi is Aisha’s carer as well as trying to control her rascal younger brother Troy, who with no father figure and a struggling mother, is a law unto himself – something must give, the situation must change. The portrait of modern Britain seen through the eyes of a family in crisis shines a spotlight on issues affecting marginal communities, including young carers, mental illness and national identity.
