The Screen Guide

Dispatched at age 15 to an institution, where she was hidden away and arrangements made for the subsequent adoption of her baby, filmmaker Steve Thomas' twin sister, Val, spent the next 25 years not knowing where her child was, or whether it was alive or dead. Val's determination and her relinquished daughter's curiosity brought about their eventual reconciliation. This event generates new encounters and provokes fresh revelations as the family motto 'least said soonest mended' is challenged in favour of an atmosphere of truth unthinkable 30 years ago.
