Who can we blame for our mistakes?

Sometimes the simplest questions are the hardest to answer. 

As eminent psychiatrist Nina’s life starts to unravel, she leans on her mother, Maya, a celebrated self-help guru but Maya’s only concern is herself. All the while Nina’s daughter, eighteen year old Amber, is in crisis and no one seems to notice. 

Calmer is a darkly funny, raw and touching examination of love, guilt and family.
