Stephanie (Sian Brooke) returns home to find her family in the full throes of wedding preparations as her mother Susan (Amanda Burton) and partner Annette (Pelka) prepare to marry. Striving to manage her anorexia back in the real world, Stephanie’s real priority is re-connecting with her teenage daughter Pearl (Fabienne Piolini-Castle).
Body of Water explores the murky, fractured and touching complexities of the mother-daughter -grandmother dynamic in the shadow of Stephanie’s destructive eating disorder.
