Synopsis: On the hottest day of the year, Barbadian fruit pickers Nicole and Vincent endure exploitative conditions on a UK fruit farm. When the farm’s owner arrives, tensions reach boiling point. This dark drama uncovers the reality behind our food supply chain.

It screened at multiple festivals. She has previously been part of the BFI Network South West Script Development Lab, BFI’s New Voices scheme, and was selected as part of ALUNA LABS first cohort.
