Mary Galloway (“Fire Song”), Nicholas Campbell (“Da Vinci’s Inquest”) and Lorne Cardinal (“Insomnia”) also star in the film which sees a mother struggle to take control of her life in the face of advanced Parkinson’s disease, while her son is battling his sexual and emotional identity amid the violence of Alberta’s oil field work camps.

Hepburn writes and directs the project. James Brown’s Christie Street Creative and Tyler Hagan Experimental Forest Films produce. Carol Whitman is exec producing. Film is backed by Telefilm Canada’s Canada Feature Film Fund, Bell Media’s Harold Greenburg Fund and the Women in the Director’s Chair Feature Film Award. The script also won best screenplay at the 2014 Vancouver International Women in Film Festival.

Producers are currently shopping the project to international sales agents.
