Cinema 2 / Cinema 3
When trainee veterinarian, Clover (Ellie Kendrick), discovers that her brother has passed away, she’s forced to return home to her family’s farm in Somerset.

Finding the farm in ruins following the floods that recently devastated the area, she’s forced to face her gruff father (David Troughton), who she hasn’t spoken to in years. As Clover discovers what’s been going on in her absence, she’s sent on a journey of reckoning – with the land, her family and herself.

A superb debut feature, written and directed by Hope Dickson Leach.
