British filmmaker Clio Barnard's third feature continues the recent trend of rural family dramas (see also: The LevellingGod's Own Country). After their father dies, a brother and sister reunite for the first time in fifteen years when she returns home to the family farm. But when she attempts to claim legal tenancy to restore the business, tensions soon resurface between the pair.
