Dr Jean Markham (Paquin) returns to the town she left as a teenager to take over her late father’s medical practice. When a school-yard scuffle lands Charlie (Gregor Selkirk) in her surgery, she invites him to visit the hives in her garden and tell his secrets to the bees, as she once did. The new friendship between the boy and the bee keeper brings his mother Lydia (Grainger) into Jean’s world. In the sanctuary of the doctor’s house the two women find themselves drawn to one another in a way that Jean recognises and fears, and Lydia could never have expected. But, in 1950’s small-town Scotland, their new secret can’t stay hidden forever.
Directed by Annabel Jankel (co-creator and director of Max Headroom), the film also stars Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch), Emun Elliott (Prometheus) and the voice of Billy Boyd (The Lord of The Rings Trilogy).
