The Inuring

T H E  I N U R I N G




A bullied teenage girl finally confronts her sister to drag their fractured past out into the light

Synopsis

The Inuring tells the story of ALEISHA, an eighteen-year-old girl who shares the family home with her twenty-five-year-old sister CLAUDETTE. Ever since their Father, TOM, passed away three years ago, the rift between the sisters has grown wider. Aloof to the outbursts and moods of her troubled younger sister, Claudette has instead turned her focus to transforming the once modern home with a vintage decor. She has one room left to infiltrate with her passion for nostalgia, Aleisha’s. But that room is already consumed by nostalgia, with Aleisha’s ache for the protective Father they have lost. Having raised his girls alone, the fragile Aleisha has been left to fend for herself, and has been losing the battle. After years of avoiding Claudette’s remonstrations, Aleisha reluctantly opens up, and their fractured past is finally dragged out into the light.

Production

It was scored in Los Angeles by Amie Doherty (Fargo, America Gothic, I Tonya) and performed by a forty-piece orchestra for the film.

The Inuring has screened at Oscar and BAFTA qualifying festivals. To date, it has won 20 awards at 60 film festivals – a one in three win ratio.
