Plot

Young mother Clara (Kazan) heads to the Big Apple with her two sons in order to escape her abusive cop husband. When her car is impounded, Clara and her family must face the harsh realities of life on the street. Elsewhere in the city, lonely ex-con Marc (Rahim) is looking to rehabilitate his life by running a Russian restaurant for eccentric proprietor, Timofey (Nighy).

At her lowest ebb, Clara discovers she’s not alone: Alice (Riseborough), a kindly ER nurse running a help group at the local church, and Jeff (Landry-Jones), a young man struggling to cope with anger management issues, prove to be her unlikely guardian angels, finding refuge for Clara and the kids at Mark’s restaurant.

From serendipitous coincidences and the kindness of strangers, the most surprising of outcomes can truly blossom. As Clara and Mark fall for each other, they discover that their liberation and hope lies in each other’s hands.
