Production Details

On a small family farm in rural England, a young teenager must finally decide his role in life. He lives with his dying father, who has always been a peaceful and respected citizen, and his older brother, a self destructive and selfish tyrant who favours the drink and is looking forward to inheriting the farm only to turn it into a housing estate and forget its existence. 
He must choose to follow somebody's example, and he may have to choose sooner than he thought.
