    • Synopsis
    • Early 1950’s. Lydia Weekes, is devastated by the disintegration of her marriage. Her son Charlie (10) misses his strong-spirited mother, who can no longer muster the energy to dance with him. His father Robert, has left - irritated by Charlie’s inability to be the son he wants him to be. Charlie is befriended by Dr. Jean Markham; a GP, returning to her small hometown to take over her late-father’s practice. Charlie is entranced by the bees in her over-grown garden, and helps Jean look after the hives as the summer unfolds. Jean tells him that bees can keep secrets - that they have kept hers, since she was a child. Through Charlie, the two women find each other; and a connection neither of them expected. In a small town where secrets are few and judgements many - and where female homosexuality is a still-whispered myth - Jean and Lydia find themselves falling in love.
