The Illegal Gardener is a moving,
poignant story about life's rare encounters which knock us off our path,
and elevate our very existence.
Driven by a need for
some control in her life, Juliet sells up on impulse and buys a run down
farmhouse in a tiny Greek village, leaving her English life behind. Her
boys have grown and she has finally divorced her bullying husband. This
is her time now.
Whilst making her new home habitable,
Juliet discovers she needs a sturdy helping hand with the unruly and
neglected garden. Unwilling to share her newfound independence with
anyone, but unable to do all the work by herself, she reluctantly
enlists casual labour.
Aaman has travelled to Greece from
Pakistan illegally. Desperate to find a way out of poverty, his
challenge is to find work and raise money for the harvester his village
urgently need to survive.
What he imagined would be a heroic
journey in reality is fraught with danger and corruption. Aaman finds
himself in Greece, and with each passing day loses a little more of
himself as he survives his new life as an immigrant worker; illegal,
displaced, unwanted and with no value. Hungry and stranded, how will he
ever make it back home to Pakistan?
In what begins as an
uncomfortable exchange, Juliet hires Aaman to be her gardener, but
resents the intrusion even though she needs the help. Aaman needs the
work and money but resents the humiliation.
In spite of
themselves, as the summer progresses, they get to know one another and
discover they have something in common. Pieces of their lives they have
kept hidden even from themselves are exposed, with each helping the
other to face their painful past.
Will Juliet and Amaan
finally let each other in? And what will be the outcome of this
improbable conjoining of two lost souls?
