For nearly 50 years the allotments of Eden Grove provided respite from the stresses & strains of urban life. The many varied allotment holders have not only shared in the planting & growing, but in the relaxation & companionship of a lively social club. As plans for the 50th Anniversary celebrations near completion the group is horrified to learn of news that the land is wanted for a development of luxury homes. The land has been left in trust and the holders decide not to sell at any price. The council and the powerful builders threaten to obtain the land by any means available! Members organize a local media blitz, but soon member's plots are being vandalised at night. Suspicions and mistrust culminate in an open meeting between the allotment holders, the council and the building firm. The stalemate is finally resolved through a surprising and unexpected denouement, which leaves all sides pondering a future few of them expected to see.
