Anna, who’s chronically ill, is visited by Doreen, a door to door proselytizer who makes herself at home and stays the day, slowly defrosting her non-welcome. Together, they walk in the park, bake a cake and watch an Ingmar Bergman film. Blind actresses Alex Bulmer and Margo Cargill star in this existential comedy.
