Synopsis : 

Angela is 12 and has 3 step-sisters approaching their thirties; the four meet for the first time when summoned for the death of a charismatic waster: their daddy. Angela has never lived with anyone other than her daddy and has no recollection of her mummy. Her sisters will leave her on the other side of the country with an aunt to prevent the social services from taking her in. On this voyage of mourning, particularly while sharing a room in a rundown roadside hotel, Angela, whose body is starting to wake up, recognises in each of her sisters their feminity, their sensuality, the mysteries of pleasure and pain, the body, misfortune and the challenge of being a woman on these roads.
