A globe-trotting romantic adventure based on the amazing true story of landscape designer Mary Reynolds. Young, gifted Irishwoman Mary Reynolds (Emma Greenwell) has a dream: to share the beauty of the natural world and communicate the need for its preservation. Her ambition is to enter the prestigious, hugely competitive Chelsea Flower Show, creating an unconventional wild nature garden in the heart of London. The odds are stacked against this idealistic outsider, who experiences plenty of setbacks and opposition from the snooty horticultural establishment. But her sheer force of will wins a dedicated band of supporters, known as the Green Angels. Key to her plans is reforestation specialist Christy Collard (Tom Hughes), whom she follows to Ethiopia. Romance blossoms, along with Mary's remarkable garden. This stunningly photographed, uplifting, inspirational and swooningly romantic true-life drama offers a terrific lead role to rising star Emma Greenwell, who was recently seen in the Jane Austen adaptation 'Love & Friendship'.
