Anna is stuck: she's approaching 30, living like a hermit in her mum's garden shed and wondering why the suffragettes ever bothered. She spends her days making videos using her thumbs as actors - thumbs that bicker about things like whether Yogi Bear is a moral or existential nihilist. But Anna doesn't show these videos to anyone and no one knows what they are for. A week before her birthday her Mum serves her an ultimatum - she needs to move out of the shed, get a haircut that doesn't put her gender in question and stop dressing like a homeless teenager. Naturally,... Anna tells her Mum to back the f-off . However, when her school friend comes to visit, Anna's self-imposed isolation becomes impossible to maintain. Soon she is entangled with a troubled eight year old boy obsessed with Westerns, and the local estate agent whose awkward interpersonal skills continually undermine his attempts to seduce her.

Rachel Tunnard writes and directs this British comedy starring Jodie Whittaker as a 29-year-old hermit who refuses to move out of her mum's garden shed. Living at the bottom of her mum (Lorraine Ashbourne)'s garden, Anna (Whittaker) spends her days working in a local youth club and her nights making videos with her thumbs as the stars of the show. When her best friend Fiona (Rachael Deering) comes to visit, Anna finds herself looking after her eight-year-old, cowboy-obsessed neighbour Clint (Ozzy Myers), fending off the awkward advances of estate agent Brendan (Brett Goldstein) and forced to confront the tragedy that led her to retreat from society.
