For American voice over artist Daniel (David Menkin), life in London is one long autopilot ride of demanding clients and awkward Grindr meets. But when his mother Stephanie (Nancy Baldwin) decides to visit with less than 24 hours’ notice, Daniel is forced to re-evaluate how fully and authentically he is living his life.

Clothes & Blow has been shortlisted for this year’s Best British Award, sponsored by Pinewood Studios.
