A story set in Tuscany about a bohemian London artist Robert (Liam Neeson) who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Neeson’s real-life son Micheál Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair, or be captivated by locals who include an ex-pat (Lindsay Duncan) making her living selling villas and a young Italian chef (Valeria Bilello) restoring both body and soul with delights from her trattoria. By actor, writer and first-time director James D'Arcy (DUNKIRK).
