Andrew Steggall writes and directs this family drama starring Juliet Stevenson as Beatrice, mother to teen poet Elliot (Alex Lawther). With her marriage in the process of ending, the pair are in rural France to clear out the family holiday home. Elliot, seeking an escape from the gloomy holiday home, meets the rebellious Clement (Phénix Brossard). They soon become friends, although for Elliot at least it develops into something more significant.
