Anna discovers her widower Dad is romantically involved with her french tutor, and that accepting a potential new mum is the most difficult journey of all...



13 year old Anna discovers her widower father is romantically involved with her French tutor.

Between teenage melancholia and taking care of the home since her mother’s passing, she seeks a way to accept a new mother-figure and leave her childhood behind ... 

In elle, I’ve attempted to catch a rare moment in time, the moment when ‘something’ happens to the teenager which, for one reason or another, becomes the defining moment in her life.
