The Leftovers


The Leftovers is a story about sexual power and consent, the myth of the perfect victim, and the way the damage of abusive relationships radiates out and resurfaces in unexpected places and unexpected ways.

Reeling from the aftereffects of a tragic car accident, one family is shattered, leaving behind Callie and her mother, Vanessa. Vanessa’s favourite child was Noah; Callie’s favourite parent was her dad. Now they’re stuck with each other—the leftovers of their family—and they’ll have to confront the ways they’ve been hurt, and the ways they’ve passed that hurt on to others.
