Following the death of her father, Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns to her home village for the first time in 15 years, to claim the tenancy to the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Her brother Joe (Mark Stanley – Game of Thrones, Love Lies and Records) who has worked the farm all these years understandably has other ideas. Then there is the spectre of their father, Richard (Sean Bean) which looms over the pair of them.

“There's scarcely room here for improvement at the level of craft or performance; in particular, it's gratifying to see leading lady Ruth Wilson headlining a big-screen vehicle worthy of her flinty brilliance.”
