Synopsis

A woman in a small town in 1959 England decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop. A decision that becomes a political minefield. By exposing the locals to cutting-edge literature of the day such as Nabokov’s 'Lolita' and Ray Bradbury’s 'Fahrenheit 451', she sows the seeds of an awakening in the conservative town.
