Based on the novel by Fiona Shaw with a post World War II setting, TELL IT TO THE BEES comes from the very little heard proverb about keeping secrets from neighbours but telling it to the bees.  This is a lesbian love story taking place in a Scottish small town, so it be best that this be kept a secret. 

 A brilliant female doctor (Anna Paquin) has just moved to the village.  She befriends a young boy.  When the boy’s mother and him is evicted rom their home after the father has left them, the doctor takes them in, only to start a love affair and relationship with the mother.  This is an emotional gut wrenching tale but with a fairy tale twist that takes away some of the story’s credibility.  But who can turn away a good fairly tale these days?  

Director Jankel loves the Scottish countryside and her film shows this – with lots of beautiful Scottish landscape scenery.
