On one side ther’s Marion who knows she wants to be a mother, on the other Salomé still doubts herself and her ability to be a mother. With humour, they'll have to face social constructs, their friends and family, and the reality of pregnancy and constructing a homoparental family. The couple goes through highs and lows, inevitable conflicts that feed their desire to have a child together... or question it.

Masterclass: Isobel Waller-Bridge
Composer - United Kingdom
Isobel Waller-Bridge is a composer and musician for fi lm, television and theatre. Her notable work includes the soundtracks to Vanity Fair, The Split and Fleabag. Isobel brilliantly and eff ortlessly works with orchestral music, electronic sound design, experimental music and songs - for series 2 of Fleabag, she even played around with a religious choir. All the while, her work is signed off with her instinctively recognisable and decidedly contemporary tone. We are delighted to be able to showcase a young and talented composer like Isobel, who has had such a phenomenal and fascinating career so far. It’s also a superb opportunity for professionals and the public to approach the subject of music’s role within series with Isobel.
Screening and case study: Hide and Seek
In an ordinary looking apartment, a father and daughter play a game of hide-and-seek. While searching for his daughter, she is nowhere to be found... Later, a video is posted which shows the girl holding a sign with a mysterious set of numbers. But what do they mean? She’s the first of several children who disappear without a trace in a small industrial town.
