Lilting Synopsis

Set in contemporary London, LILTING tells the story of a Cambodian Chinese mother mourning the untimely death of her son. Her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. We observe their difficulties in trying to connect with one another without a common language. Through a translator they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly, and realise that whilst they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief.
