By Pat Rowe.

Minnie, an elderly Polish wartime emigre, begins a new friendship with a little toad that skips in from the garden which offers her a delightful way back into her romantic memories of the past.

But for her daughter Sylvia, this is the last straw - Minnie seems to be going mad.

With Ruth Posner, Imelda Staunton, Rachel Gaffin and Nitzan Sharron.

Directed by Penny Gold
