Set to the songs of The Smiths, THE MORE YOU IGNORE ME is a darkly funny coming-of-age story of dysfunctional family life in the 1980s. Gina is a young mother, whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health. Things deteriorate when she develops an obsession with the local weatherman, which leads to an admission to the nearby psychiatric hospital. Over the years, as she grows up, her daughter Alice struggles to relate to her heavily medicated mum, and causes chaos when she comes up with a plan to reconnect with her, which divides the family forever and leads to a moving climax.
