The synopsis A romantic drama set in an Italian Swiss village. Alice is a beautiful and troubled twenty-something who is on the run from a life that is out of control. When her estranged father dies she returns to the village of her childhood to execute his will. Here she meets the grandmother she never knew, a man who may hold the key to her heart and a young epileptic boy. We watch to see if Alice can mend the damage inflicted by warring parents. Ultimately Jump is an uplifting story about the power of friendship and love.
This is Hastings wishes the best of luck with all the screenings and hopes that you will try and make it to the Electric palace on sunday the 18th november.
