In this gentle thriller set in a faded English manor house, barren soil becomes a metaphor for lack of love. When a mysterious governess enters a dysfunctional upper middle class family, her wit and compassion and knowledge of gardening transform a hollow and meaningless world of social pretense into earth which is rich with the promise of life.
