Synopsis

Acclaimed screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce (A Cock and Bull Story, Millions, 24 Hour Party People) has teamed up with filmmaker and friend Carl Hunter to create real life, true love and plump vegetables on a city allotment. A refugee family are given a plot to help rehabilitate their traumatised father. At first they are met with suspicion by the people who have passionately worked the gardens for years, but eventually they are accepted into a diverse community united by their love of making things grow.
