The most dangerous thing to want is more.

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Two English girls, Mona and Tasmin, develop an unlikely but intense friendship to the dismay of Mona’s born-again brother.

Mona has just got hold of a brilliant moped that only cost a tenner. No engine but still dirt-cheap. She lives with her brother, Phil, who used to run a pub before he found God and poured away all the booze. Tamsin is rich, spoilt and trying to live a life of seductive decadence.

They meet on the moors, above their quiet Yorkshire village and begin an intense, unlikely friendship. Tamsin is tragic and fantastical, Mona, rough and witty. Tamsin is charmed and Mona is hooked.

Tamsin and Mona want to escape their lives but Phil wants to save them and save everybody else. Mona wants the old, dangerous, Phil back; the brother that she loved. Tamsin wants to see what it takes to break him.

Two 16-year olds spending one long, hot English summer together in Yorkshire. Mona is a tough Northern lass whose spiky exterior hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life. Tamsin is well educated, cynical and spoiled, and, unlike Mona, incapable of love. At first Mona and Tamsin’s distinctly opposite cultures, backgrounds and characters cause them not to understand or trust each other, but gradually these differences lead to mutual fascination and attraction. Added into the volatile mix is Phil who, despite his troubled past, has now found divine love which he hopes will save himself and Mona.”
