Shot on location in the sun-baked Kent countryside, Strawberry Fields is a rites-of-passage drama about a young woman who finally escapes from the grip of her dysfunctional sister and experiences freedom and lust for the first time.

Gillian (Anna Madeley) finds employment on a fruit farm under the fake name of Tammy, where she enjoys a simmering flirtation with fellow worker Kevin (Emun Elliot).

Soon after, a peculiar young woman called Emily (Christine Bottomley) arrives on the farm and exposes Gillian’s deception then attempts to impose control over her sibling by chasing after Kevin as well. The mind games and power plays threaten to poison Gillian’s new-found happiness and she must make stark choices about severing familial ties forever.

Released: July 6 (UK, selected cinemas), 87 mins
