Feature screenplay by Lara Moon

Period drama

An epic story about the power of love to destroy and to redeem.

Adapted from her autobiography, No Cake, No Jam charts the incredible childhood of Marian Hughes, from a London orphanage, through the Blitz, surviving poverty, near starvation, and the ravings of her mercurial mother whom she loves above all else; but ultimately cannot save.

A real-life rites of passage story, sometimes harrowing, often hilarious, and at all times true; a testament to the triumph of Marian’s indomitable spirit, and her capacity to love against all odds.

Writer Lara Moon
Producer Annie Moore
Director Gabrielle Russell
