Tell It to the Bees

by Annabel Jankel Gala Premieres

Scotland in the mid-1950s: after a failed marriage, Lydia suddenly has to cope as a single mother. In addition to financial hardship, the factory worker also worries about her son, Charlie, who is being bullied at school. When one day, he ends up at the doctor’s. Taking care of his minor injuries is doctor and beekeeper Jean who only recently returned to her Scottish hometown. Fascinated by her bee colony, Charlie finds an ally in Jean. Lydia also befriends the helpful doctor and begins to see her with different eyes. While the two women get closer and a mutual affection begins to develop their conservative fellow citizens are neither amused nor willing to tolerate their relationship. Annabel Jankel's sensitive drama TELL IT TO THE BEES is the story of a courageous fight for love in the face of social rejection.
