Synopsis


Somerset, England.

Trainee veterinarian Clover Catto returns to the farm where she grew up after hearing news that her brother Harry has died - in what appears to be a suicide. Finding the family home in a state of horrendous disrepair following the 2014 floods that devastated the area, Clover is forced to confront her father Aubrey - about the farm, the livestock and, crucially, the details surrounding Harry's death. Clover's discoveries send her on an emotional journey of reckoning - with her family, her childhood and herself.

A poised and highly promising first feature from writer/director Hope Dickson Leach, complete with a calm assurance and brooding tension that builds successfully towards a quietly moving climax.
