Synopsis

Tom is a young farmer who lives in Akenfield, a small village in England. In 1974, Tom attends his grandfather's funeral and finds himself questioning his oppressive family history and his role within it. Will he, like his grandfather and father before him, never escape the secure but dreary existence that farming life in Akenfield holds in store for him? Or will he take a chance and venture out into the world beyond and possibly suffer as a consequence?
