“Anika tried to kill herself again.”

“She get it right this time?” 

Flight Lessons is a dark comedy for expats who find that the grass definitely isn’t greener. Moving to London was Maja’s one shot to get out of small town South Africa. Young, white and Afrikaans, her future is a toss between 7-Eleven checkout girl or being broke but (at the very least…) international. For Anika, there was never any other choice. As Maya questions her attachment to her home country, Anika confronts her friendship with the girl she thought she couldn’t live without.
