Summary
Electricity is now a film starring Agyness Deyn. Lily's epilepsy means she's used to seeing the world in terms of angles - you look at every surface, you weigh up every corner, and you think of your head slamming into it - but what would she be like without her sharp edges? Prickly, spiky, up-front honest and down-to-earth practical, Lily is thirty, and life's not easy but she gets by. Needing no-one and asking for nothing, it's just her and her epilepsy: her constant companion. But then Lily's long-estranged mother dies, and Lily is drawn back into a world she thought she'd left behind. Forced to renegotiate the boundaries of her life, she realises she has a lot to learn - about relationships, about the past, and about herself - and some difficult decisions ahead of her
Summary
Thirty-year-old Lily's epilepsy has shaped her life, forcing her to see the world in terms of angles and to make do, make the most of everything, and rely only on herself to look after her well-being, until the death of her mother draws Lily back into a world she thought she had long since left behind and to a reunion with one brother, a charismatic poker player, and a search for second missing brother.
