David Tennant and Liam Brennan star in a dramatisation of John Steinbeck’s novel about migrant workers in 1930s California.
This tragic tale of dreams destroyed explores the friendship between George Milton and Lennie Small in the last three days of Lennie’s life.
On the run from a town where Lennie has been accused of rape, they pick up new jobs on a ranch.
But when his new boss’s wife finds Lennie alone in the barn, the men’s hopes for the future are ripped apart.
