Skins meets Home Alone in this funny and heartbreaking drama.

Dancing a fine line between hilarity and heartache, TUSK, TUSK is the new offering from 26-year-old English sensation, Polly Stenham ( That Face).
"Tusk, Tusk is often remarkably funny, as well as exceptionally touching."- Daily Telegraph
