Ditchling Film Society: tonight, Thursday 7 March, the Society is showing Ice Mother. The film is about Hana, a happy and selfless 67 year old mother and grandmother who experiences a series of life-changing events which changes her relationship with her selfish sons. Hana rescues an elderly swimmer, Brona, who is mysterious and quite a character and slowly Hana starts to fall for Brona. The newly confident Hana then starts to change her life.
