So· ror noun (plural ‘sorors’) from the latin ‘soror’ meaning ‘sister’


Soror explores the lives and relationships of two half-sisters; Grace, insular and shy but a talented dancer; and Lisa, who dreams of escaping the confines of their upbringing. The close relationship shared by the sisters is the most important part of their lives; the only thing that truly means anything. Starring Rosie Day (The Seasoning House, Sixteen, All Roads Lead to Rome), Sian Breckin (Donkey Punch, Tyrannosaur, Starred Up), James Alexandrou (Eastenders, Silent Witness) and BAFTA winner Kate Dickie (Red Road, Filth, Prometheus, Game of Thrones) Soror is a poignant drama about relationships and personal goals.


Soror is a Springhead Film Company and Joker’s Pack production and was made in association with Fingercuff, Sleepless Films, Zealous, Mini Productions and Palladio Productions. The film had its festival premiere at London Short Film Festival and was shown at the 2015 Cannes Short Film Corner.
