November/December 2017

In 1950s England, young Danny lives in a motor home with his father, William, next to the garage that William owns and operates just outside a small village. Local businessman Victor Hazell has quietly been buying up the woods surrounding William's garage to develop into a housing estate, but William refuses to sell. When Hazell organizes a pheasant shoot to woo the local upper crust in aid of his plans, Danny and his father plot their revenge.
