Getting to the Foot of the Mountain

Cast: 4 women, 3 men

When Danielle was a child, three women loomed large in her life: her gritty, responsible mother, her wild-child aunt and their best friend. Now a young woman herself and facing the break-up of another relationship, Danielle takes stock of her childhood years – of an absent dad, of her fascination with a neighbourhood “bad boy” – and uncovers a story of everyday heroism and the strange tricks that memory can play.
