Everyone has high expectations of Madeleine, a 25-year-old black woman living in London. She has to help her mother financially, look after her father with Parkinson’s disease, and everyone expects her to have a career, a serious relationship and children. When her mother returns to London temporarily, Maddie moves out and starts a new life. She gets a better job, a partner, socialises with her flatmates and builds up her confidence. But not everything goes as planned. A warm, moving story about a distracted young woman facing important life choices. For the first time, she steps out of her comfort zone and reflects on who she really wants to be. Many young adults will identify with Maddie.
