Their first feature film, which they co-wrote, produced and directed was Mothers & Daughters. For which they were nominated - The Golden Hitchcock Award for Direction.

Mothers & Daughters was invited to film festivals worldwide in 2004, debuting at Cannes Film Festival then playing at: São Paulo; Montreal, Quebec; Barcelona; Chicago; New York Indie; AFM; The Hamptons; Raindance, and finally the Festival Film Brittanique du Dinard where it was chosen as one of the top six British films of 2004.
