Set on the Anniversary of a husband’s death, as arrangements are finalised for the disposal of his ashes at a popular bathing cove, MID-TERM BREAK features two women at a pivotal moment in their lives.

Adjusting to life after the death of her husband, Maura’s friendship with Julie has become a relationship, but their commitment to each other is ambivalent and uncertain.

As Maura assesses the scars of an unhappy marriage, the deteriorating relationships with her adult children, and the nature of her new relationship with Julie, they are all forced to confront some unpalatable truths.
