Good Neighbors co-stars Felicity Kendal and Paul Eddington reunite for director Ken Taylor's adaptation of Mary Wesley's popular novel concerning the innocent summer before war changed everything, and the relationship shared by five cousins as they gather to pay tribute to their deceased uncle years later. As the warm breeze of August blows in the summer of 1939, five cousins gather on the Cornish coast to spend their carefree summer days bonding in the lavish estate of their wealthy uncle. War looms ominously on the horizon, though, and as these five youngsters bide their time by exploring the hills and cliffs of the countryside, they remain blissfully unaware that their lives are about to be changed forever. Decades later, in the shadow of a death, the cousins return to their childhood playground to pay their respects and share stories of how their lives were forever changed in the dark days following that one, unforgettable summer.
