Snow Cake

Snow Cake Synopsis

Following a car accident in which his hitchhiking passenger is killed, Englishman Alan makes the journey to pay his respects to the girl's mother. When he meets Linda it's obvious that she's out of the ordinary; a brash, autistic woman and absolute force of nature, she immediately invites him to stay at her house - as long as he doesn't stain the carpet. As they spend time together it becomes clear that he has a unique ability to tame her and, in turn, she helps him confront the demons of his past; of the son who was killed in a car crash and of the guilty driver he killed in a fit of rage. SNOW CAKE is a film about the power of friendship, no matter how eccentric, to change our lives and heal our hearts.
