Further details

Paying him a surprise visit, Tim's loud, brash New Yorker Mom is in town and she has an agenda! Not wanting to see her baby deported back to the US, Mom wants to hook Tim up with a nice British girl.

However the cruel world of online dating is, it's even more cruel when you're a man with cerebral palsy, and after a series of disastrous encounters Tim is ready to give up - until he bumps into art student Clara. Hitting it off immediately Tim takes the plunge, inviting her to the exhibition of his art school nemesis Keifer.

But after Tim gets dragged into his usual lame, competitive trash talk with Keifer, he risks putting Clara off for good.
