In Francis Lee’s GOD’S OWN COUNTRY Johnny Saxby works long hours in brutal isolation on his family’s remote farm in the north of England.
Johnny numbs the daily frustration of his lonely existence with nightly binge-drinking at the local pub and casual sex.
When a handsome Romanian migrant worker arrives to take up temporary work on the family farm, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before.
An intense relationship forms between the two which changes Johnny’s life forever.
