Synopsis

Hectic days and late nights. Daphne is caught in the daily rush of her restaurant job, and a nightlife kaleidoscope of new faces. She is witty, funny, the life of the party. A quick acerbic humour is her distinctive feature, but deep down Daphne is not happy. Busy fending off her mother’s attempts to get closer to her, she is stuck in a rut, and can't move forward. Then when she saves the life of Benny, a shopkeeper stabbed in a failed robbery, the impenetrable armour she wears to protect herself begins to crack, and Daphne is forced to confront the inevitability of a much needed change in her life.
