Tina Bell (Jessica Hynes) lives in a quiet seaside town, but her life is anything but quiet - her mother is threatening to leave her father, her daughter is being bullied and she and her husband Mick (Shaun Parkes) are juggling full time jobs and three children. Determined to ditch the dysfunction and beat her inner demons, Tina puts on her fighting gloves, literally - stepping into the boxing ring to sweat out her anxieties and punch up her self-worth. But does she have what it takes to get her family off the ropes and emerge victorious? Hynes steps both in the ring and behind the camera for this heartfelt tale.
We are delighted to welcome Director and Star Jessica Hynes to QUAD for a post screening Q&A led by QUAD's Daisy Leverington following our 6:20pm screening on Friday 22 March.
