The story follows a group of people who re-evaluate loss, love and human connection when they find themselves together on a remote Greek island.

The film is based on Elizabeth Jane Howard’s acclaimed novel of the same name, with Rocket Science handling worldwide sales for the project and is currently on the lookout for buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin. Rebecca Lenkiewicz has adapted the novel for the screen and Barnaby Thompson is producing for Fragile Films. Principal photography is scheduled to begin later this year in the UK and Europe.
