Synopsis

Written by Carl Hunter and Frank Cottrell Boyce (one of Britain's greatest screenwriters and responsible for most of Michael Winterbottom's recent successes) this amusing story tells of a traumatised asylum seeker from China who's given an allotment to help him integrate, in the midst of a group of prejudiced and eccentric Brits – growers trying to sell out to a mobile phone company. This is a subtle look at the changing face of working-class society as it faces up to the phenomenon of ethnic immigration, called by Mark Kermode 'an amiable post-East Is East social comedy that uses the tensions on a Northern allotment as a paradigm for multicultural Britain.'

Carl Hunter will be here to introduce and discuss his film
