Synopsis


"What about people who can't make friends?


Or who don't laugh and are full of no love?


They're the real disabilities. I think."


Agnes and her daughter Kelly have walked the same stretch of Skegness beach every day for fifteen years.


They devour ice cream, hunt for crabs and watch as things mysteriously vanish along the shoreline.


But when Kelly meets Neil, their cosy world soon begins to unravel.


With her mum struggling to understand the needs of a maturing daughter with Down's Syndrome, Kelly and Neil have to fight for their right to be together.


While Agnes and Kelly drift further and further apart, an event is coming that will change all of their lives forever.


Jellyfish is the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age in modern Britain.


It's a unique romance across uncharted waters which asks: does everyone really have the right to love as they choose?
