apples is apples is an engaging portrait of Chilli Studios, a creative service for adults who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, diagnosed mental health problems and other forms of social exclusion.

As the footage unfolds, the film playfully explores the group's interactions within the wider context of human behaviour and accepted social norms that prevail outside the walls of the Art Studio.
