Synopsis

Jamie Adams directs this improvised comedy starring Alice Lowe and Dolly Wells as Lisa and Claire, sisters on the run from the police for a series of petty crimes. When they find an invitation to attend an exclusive retreat for poets in Wales addressed to the Wildling Sisters, the pair accept, despite their complete lack of literary talent. Their ruse soon comes under threat when they are expected to perform for the Poets' Poetry Society, but an unconventional rendition and Lisa and Claire's peculiar behaviour are accepted by the other participants as raw eccentric talent. The sisterly relationship is challenged by their competing affection for Richard (Tom Cullen).
