Marbles by Anna Marie Ramm
Roberta Allen with her silver moon boots is a familiar figure in the streets of Norwich.

The discovery of a winning lottery ticket changes Roberta’s life forever… but is it for better or worse?
With sensitivity and flashes of humour, this short film addresses some of the issues facing the elderly in the UK today.
