Based on the successful young adult novel My Life As An Alphabet by Australian author Barry Jonsberg, the film follows Candice Phee – a twelve-year-old girl with boundless optimism and a unique view of the world. Set in a small coastal town, it’s about an unflinchingly honest girl’s determination to bring her family back from the brink.
“This delightful coming-of-age dramedy provides feel-good entertainment for the entire family without pandering — or sacrificing style or substance.” – Variety
