Traversing familial duty, love, guilt, resentment and regret, Consent centers two sets of sisters and the ways trauma forever alters their relationships. Saskia and Jenny are twins who are nothing alike. Sara and Mattie are sisters with a fraught relationship punctuated by Mattie needing her sister to be her caretaker. When Mattie’s ex-husband Robert turns up, however, tragedy soon follows.
