Directed by BAFTA award-winning John Roberts, DAY OF THE FLOWERS is a colourful and wryly humorous tale of cross-cultural misunderstandings and lost illusions staring Eva Birthistle ('Ae Fond Kiss', 'Breakfast on Pluto'), Charity Wakefield ('Serena') and introduces the acclaimed ballet star Carlos Acosta in his first feature-length role. Two young, strong-willed Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a born-to-shop fashionista, take their late father's ashes to Cuba, the site of many intriguing family legends. Arriving in Havana, the two women promptly lose the ashes and go through a series of misadventures - both romantic and dangerous - to try to retrieve them, making some surprising discoveries along the way about the family ties that hold them together.
