Seven people urbanites are seduced by a brochure offering change, personal growth, and a break from overcrowded and polluted London at a therapeutic weekend in the Cotswolds which will ‘change their life’. It does, but not in the way they imagine.
The weekend is facilitated by a husband and wife combo who immediately confiscate their mobile phones. They are ensconced in yurts and tipis on a farm, miles from anywhere…
