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

When Dr. Bamford (Martin Clunes) and two townsmen witness the extreme phosphorescent lighting at Grace's (Brenda Blethyn) hothouse, the two townsmen want to call the local police and the RAF, for fear about Grace's well-being. Dr. Bamford discourages them, and advises then that Grace is helping apply her special growing techniques to certain medicinal plants. The townsmen ask Dr. Bamford whether he ever tried the plants, and he allows that he did, once, while in college, but he didn't inhale. That is an obvious allusion to former President Clinton, who famously indicated he tried marijuana during his Rhodes Scholar years in England, but didn't inhale. 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.
