Synopsis

Emily (Diane Keaton) - an American widow who lives in a property she can no longer afford - meets Irish recluse Donald (Brendan Gleeson), who lives off the land and has claimed squatter’s rights on a patch of land in Hampstead Heath. When his home is threatened by property developers, Emily jumps in to help, not realising that a romance would soon also blossom.
