After the murder of her husband, Celia has shut herself and her 16-year-old daughter Zoë away, toiling on a peach farm in the middle of nowhere

The arrival of two young people to help during picking season heralds the beginning of the end for Celia's safe existence

Her daughter falls in love with enigmatic, erratic Kieran, but when the relationship is threatened, they run away together

The safe, perhaps smothering, world that Celia has created unravels; her paranoia and insecurities amplified to full volume

Playing out alongside her fear, we see the increasingly degrading and dangerous lifestyle that the two elopers have fallen into

Peach Season is a powerful, salutary tale showing what it's like to be a young person desperate for independence, but also, crucially, what it's like to be a parent during the painful process of letting children fly the nest
