Connie Nielsen and Christopher Eccleston star in this thriller about a woman who wakes in hospital after a brain injury with no recollection of any of the events of the previous year.

Season three of the anthology from up-and-coming filmmakers returns with three shorts, beginning with Mincemeat - the story of a girl trying to tackle her overbearing mother's hoarding.
Next up is Cradled, about a new mum getting to grips with how overwhelming modern motherhood is whose life descends into chaos when her baby begins to talk.
Finally, Superdad sees a father and son go on a bonding road trip - although one of them should be in school and the other in a psychiatric hospital.
