Summary

Andrea Dunbar was an unflinchingly honest playwright who wrote about her distressing upbringing in The Arbor, the notorious Buttershaw Estate in Bradford, U.K. When she died tragically in 1990 at the age of 29, Andrea left behind her plays and three children by three different men. This documentary follows her children on a journey of reflection and self-discovery as they begin to understand the struggles their mother faced. This documentary is comprised of personal letters, interviews with Andrea's family and friends, and a reading of her most celebrated play.
