What happens when asylum seekers move into an allotment in the north of England. Community and racism are explored in a lightly political comedy that began life as a documentary about a real-life project. 'Raking over this original idea, screenwriters Frank Cottrell-Boyce and Carl Hunter sow the seeds of a fictional slice of life, nurturing shoots of observational comedy, gentle romance and conflict.' (Manchester Evening News)
