"★★★★ – a husband’s grief becomes a thing of beauty in lyrical documentary" – Observer

★★★★ – Sunday Times

"This is an exquisite film. Extremely beautiful and helpful for anyone suffering loss or grief. An inspiration" – Sir Mark Rylance

Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress by hand, just from the fibre of locally foraged stinging nettles.

This is ‘hedgerow couture’, the greenest of slow fashion, and also his medicine. It's how he survives the death of his wife and finds a beautiful way to honour her.

A modern-day fairytale and hymn to the healing power of nature and slow craft.
