After the funeral of their youngest sister, an autistic teenager and her sister try to come to terms with their grief.

Our Sister marks a considerable tonal shift for Westhoff’s work. She’s now working with formidable Producer Fiona Hardingham from Adapted Pictures, and having previously centred on stories which walk the line between comedy and drama this is her first straight drama.
