Personal Effects

After her brother’s death, Katie needs to deal with the personalised mix CD he left her

In the aftermath of a death in the family, a huge task sprawls out in front of you: how do you remember someone who isn’t there anymore?

Katie, a young woman grappling with grief, sets out to answer that question. Drawing on contemporary drama influences like Joanna Hogg and Hirokazu Koreeda, Personal Effects focuses on one conversation between two women, while also spinning out into fractured personal recollections and a traumatic episode in the past.
