    • Synopsis
    • Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns to her hometown for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy to the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Once there she is confronted by a brother (Mark Stanley) she barely recognises, worn down by years of trying to keep the farm going, who is naturally hostile to her arrival and her claim. Alice must confront traumatic memories and family betrayals to find a way to restore the farm and salvage the bond with her brother…before both are irrevocably lost.
