Synopsis
A humorous, emotional journey of discovery and self acceptance. Will, a screenwriter in his 30s, goes to see Ellen, a slightly unconventional therapist, to figure out why he’s never had a successful relationship. She helps him realise that he’s never really dealt with a childhood tragedy. Using a creative technique, she shows Will the way this affected him as a boy, and unlocks barriers that help him see a better future.

From the author of the acclaimed Visiting Mr Green, an Australian premiere.
