Writer Daisy Langrish buys a country cottage and Henry Kent, a very nice man, offers to take care of her overgrown garden: but all is not as it seems. Eventually, even Daisy becomes suspicious, and starts investigating his past relationships including his first-love Daphne (Alexandra Moen). Lady Carteret (Joanna David), Daphne’s mother, tells a very different tale.
Henry Kent’s young Daphne is seen in many flashbacks but the middle-aged Daphne is seen in only one brief scene when she answers the door to Daisy.
