The Story

Brilliant but befuddled Felix Humble returns to his family’s English country garden to find his recently deceased dad’s beloved beehive empty and his mother carrying on with another man—the father of his ex-girlfriend! Felix understands string theory, but he can’t begin to sort out what his dysfunctional family is meant to be—or not to be. A hilarious, poignant glimpse at the joy and pain of family love.
