Synopsis

Gripped by a failing marriage and the responsibilities of having a young son, Lydia (Holliday Grainger) finds solace in her growing bond with the town’s new female doctor Jean (Anna Paquin). But this is the 1950s in a post-WWII rural Scotland, and the womens’ relationship prompts raised eyebrows in their provincial circles. A romance before its time, 'Tell It to the Bees' is a heart-wrenching portrait of a love against all odds.
