Somerset, England. Trainee veterinarian Clover Catto returns to the farm where she grew up after hearing news that her brother Harry has died - an apparent suicide.

As the funeral approaches Clover’s discoveries send her on an emotional journey of reckoning - with the land, her family and herself.
