At the start of the summer, Bridget (Kelly O’Sullivan) has an abortion just as she lands a much-needed job in an affluent Chicago suburb – nannying six-year old Frances (played by the scene-stealing Ramona Edith-Williams). With no time to recover, she clashes with the obstinate Frances and struggles to navigate a growing tension between Frances’ moms. As her personal relationships suffer, a reluctant friendship with Frances emerges, and Bridget contends with the inevitable joys and shit-shows of becoming a part of someone else’s family.

“Both a beautifully specific character study and something that has resonance beyond the demographic of its cast.” – Brian Tallerico,

“Will take you through an entire journey of emotion, it’s so insightful and eloquent and respectful and painful and affirming.” – Roxana Hadadi, Pajiba
