The First Day of the Rest of Your Life

This charming dramatic comedy charts the rights of passage of a family of five. A portrait of their family life sketched out over twelve years, through five key days. Five crucial days in the life of each person, which resonate across the whole family, informing and altering their lives in passionate, playful and irreversible ways. They fight, love and live through first loves, first jobs, family gatherings and family departures in a series of beautifully and comically observed passages of time, growing up and growing older, and occasionally wiser.
