The End We Start From is set in London against the backdrop of an environmental crisis that sees the city covered in floodwaters.

The feature thriller is adapted from the acclaimed 2017 novel by Megan Hunter.

Producers for the feature are Leah Clarke, Adam Ackland, Liza Marshall, Sophie Hunter and Amy Jackson. Three of the producers had spoken previously about the project and how it is held close to heart. “The End We Start From is very close to our hearts. Megan’s heart-wrenching novel, and Alice’s wonderful adaptation, present a story about motherhood, separation, social and environmental upheaval, and those primal instincts in us which draw moments of joy and inspiration out of the chaos,” film producers Marshall, Ackland and Clarke said. “We are incredibly excited to have Mahalia and Jodie lead this talented creative team in making what we know will be a resonant, riveting film.“ Cumberbatch, Sébastien Raybaud, Cecile Gaget, Eva Yates and Comer will executive produce.
