Synopsis:
War changes all of us – and sometimes we no longer recognise ourselves. At the end of the war, Silvana and eight-year-old Aurek board the ship that will take them from Poland to England. After living wild in the forests for years, carrying a terrible secret, all Silvana knows is that she and Aurek are survivors. Everything else is lost. Waiting in Ipswich is Silvana’s husband Janusz who has not seen his wife and son in six years. After fleeing Poland and the war that left him a deserter, he has found his family a house. He works hard planting a proper English garden to welcome them and to avoid thinking about his own dark past. But the six years apart have changed them all. To make Aurek a real home, Silvana and Janusz will have to come to terms with what happened during the war, accept that each is different and allow their beloved but wild son to be who he truly is.
