A street in Bradford, Northern England known as „The Arbor“ left an indelible impression on playwright Andrea Dunbar. She grew up there, named her first play after it and based all of her subsequent work there, of which her best known Rita Sue and Bob Too was adapted successfully for the big screen in 1987. She died tragically at the age of 29, leaving 3 young children. - Director Clio Barnard could have adapated Dunbar‘s play The Arbor for the screen or made a conventional documentary on her life, but instead she has crafted a captivating and truly unique work that transcends genre and defies categorization.
