Laura Whitmore has written a short film called Sadhb which will screen at the Irish Film Festival London. It’s about a young mother who is struggling in life but puts on a mask for the rest of the world, and the message is that whatever you’re feeling, there are other who feel the same no matter who you are. She describes the short film as “a passion project”.
