Julie defies her protective mother as she slips deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship that comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams. Joanna Hogg’s story of first love and a young woman’s formative years is semi-autobiographical." Souvenir is Joanna Hogg's follow-up to her 2019 film."
