The Nest

By Sean Durkin


Rory, an ambi­tious entre­pre­neur and for­mer com­modi­ties bro­ker, per­suades his Amer­i­can wife, Alli­son, and their chil­dren to leave the com­forts of sub­ur­ban Amer­i­ca and return to his native Eng­land dur­ing the 1980s. Sens­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty, Rory leas­es a cen­turies-old coun­try manor, with grounds for Allison’s hors­es. Soon the promise of a lucra­tive new begin­ning starts to unrav­el, the cou­ple have to face the unwel­come truths lying beneath the sur­face of their marriage.
