Joe (Jamie Dornan) is a mysterious stranger who spends time with Hannah (Jean Simmons), an old, poetry-loving widow which Joe supplies with marijuana to help ease her long-term illness. When during his divorce, Hannah's son Robert (James Wilby) returns to her Norfolk home for the summer with his two children, Kate (Ophelia Lovibond) and Sam (Toby Marlow), he wonders what his mom is doing with Joe. Yet somehow Joe will help this lost family review their lives and work through their barriers and differences...

Great role by the prolific Jean Simmons (starred opposite Brando in Guys and Dolls and opposite Kirk Douglas in Spartacus) as the lingering widow of a diplomat, with only the view of the beach from her Norfolk home, her garden and her poetry, and Joe and his medicine to soothe her remaining days.
