Daphne is a young woman negotiating the tricky business of modern life. 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. Too busy to realise that deep down she is not happy. When she saves the life of 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.
Turning the well-established romcom formula on its head, Daphne is a 21st century take on the genre, with an award-winning performance from Emily Beecham (Best Performance in a British Feature Film, Edinburgh Film Festival 2017)
