A captivating adaptation of Fiona Shaw’s acclaimed novel about a romance that evolves between two women in 1950’s small-town Britain.
Jean (Anna 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 a young boy named Charlie 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 unlikely friendship between the boy and the bee keeper brings Charlie’s mother into Jean’s world, and the two find themselves drawn into a feverish romance.
