The film tells the story of a 15-year-old gymnast focussed on her first competition. When a half-brother she didn’t know existed turns up to stay, her world is turned upside down and she becomes caught up with her new brother’s exploits.
“This is a film about complicated families, and about learning to have confidence in yourself,” said Riley.
Riley’s short film Patriot screened In Competition at Cannes in 2015. She was selected as a Screen International UK Star of Tomorrow in 2016.
