Following the sudden death of her brother, Clover (Ellie Kendrick) returns to her family farm in Somerset. Shocked to find it still devastated from the aftermath of the 2014 floods, Clover confronts her ill-tempered father Aubrey (David Troughton) from whom she is as distant as ever. But Clover’s absence has paid a price and Aubrey, refusing to accept what has happened to his son and the farm, pushes Clover further away.

As Clover retreats into the daily farming routine, the murky cloud of uncertainty hanging over what happened to her brother further fuels her intent on discovering the truth. She embarks on a rocky and emotional journey of discovery and a reckoning with the land, her father and ultimately herself.

But will Clover’s findings allow her the solace that she longs for and can she and Aubrey rectify their differences and leave the past behind them?
