Emily, a research scientist, is conducting malaria vaccine trials in West Africa when she is visited by her daughter, Anna, who is travelling on her gap year. Anna is nursing a broken heart, and Emily wants nothing more than to support her, but finds herself distracted by her conflicting feelings towards John, a married doctor she meets there.
In 'Love Bites', Andy Kissane captures the different facets of a mother-daughter relationship – the tension, unequivocal love and support and the way in which there can often be parallels in the choices that they make in their lives.
