A widow discovers after her husband's suicide that he has mortgaged everything they own and the banks are ready to foreclose. Faced with impending doom and little working knowledge except her ability to grow plants, she struggles to save her home. Enter her gardener, who is struggling to make a few marijuana plants grow in a hidden location and suggests that she use her green house to help grow the plants and sell them to make the money both need. He is wanting to get married, but needs capital. What he doesn't know is that his girl friend is pregnant and thus fears that they will be busted for growing marijuana. While supposedly working, the whole village is well aware of the endeavor and is hoping for their success. When the plants come in, Grace takes the crop to London and tries to sell it to a ruthless, but charming drug dealer. Everything busts loose from there. Written by

This movie was the inspiration for Martin Clunes' TV Movie and long-running Series, Doc Martin. See more »
The level of Grace's wine when she's talking to her late husband's lover. It goes from half to almost full as the camera switches from a side to a behind view. Also, when the wine is poured, the bottle is not tipped up long enough and it doesn't make a long enough pouring sound to put that much wine in the glass. See more »

In the opening credits, the movie title appears and then turns to smoke & blows away while you hear someone exhale. See more »
This movie is inspiring to anyone who is or has been in a tough jam, whether financially or emotionally. You will definitely laugh, which is the best medicine! :) Left in a bad financial situation when her husband dies, Grace has to find a new way to make some money and it's not exactly legal which adds to the humour. Even my boyfriend liked it so don't think that it's a chick-flic.
