Welcome Stop is a 25-minute narrative short that explores relationships and boundaries among three disabled characters. It follows Morag along the first steps of her path to self-discovery, as she dumps her oppressive boyfriend at a motorway service station and hitches a ride with Gerry, a recovering sex-and-love addict.
An unconventional road movie, Welcome Stop exudes a sense of freedom and adventure. Attempting bold transformations in their lives, the characters don’t always succeed gracefully, but at least they try.
