A stunning debut feature by writer-director Hope Dickson Leach, starring Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones) and David Troughton (Radio 4 The Archers, Dr Who).

Clover (Kendrick) returns to her family farm after the mysterious passing death of her brother, Harry. Against the backdrop of the floods that devastated her home, Clover confronts her estranged father, Aubrey (Troughton), attempting to uncover the truth. Shadowed by ill-remembered conflicts and unspoken regrets, the pair set out to heal their fractious yet still loving relationship.

Troughton gives a finely tempered performance, perfectly matched by Kendrick’s extraordinary presence in the breakout role of the year

The screening on Thu 11 May, 18:00 will be followed by a live Q&A with director Hope Dickson Leach.

A superb debut with two terrific, nuanced central performances from Ellie Kendrick and David Troughton as father and daughter reunited at their Somerset farm still recovering from devastating floods and the death of Clover's (Kendrick) younger brother Harry. Heartbreak and family tension are culpable in their fractious relationship as they both struggle with the loss of the farm and a loved family member. With an excellent after show talk with Director: Hope Dickson-Leach. Do not miss when it opens.
