Directed by Grant McPhee and produced by Tartan Features, Far from the Apple Tree, is a Scottish fantasy film. It stars Sorcha Groundsell, from Netflix's The Innocents as Judith. Judith is a struggling artist who finds herself in what seems like a great opportunity when she is hired by a renowned and sinister visual artist named Roberta Roslyn.


Far from the Apple Tree follows the story of Judith, a young artist at the start of her career, who lands a job with a renowned visual artist called Robert Roslyn.  She lands her dream job when she is spotted by Roberta at one of her art gallery exhibitions and hired to help catalogue her work.

Whilst on the job she is shocked to see a girl who closely resembles her repeatedly show up in Roberta’s artwork. She learns that this girl is her boss's missing daughter Maddy.

As she delves into the mystery of the missing girl, new persona begins to emerge within her.  Becoming aware of her unwinding nature, Judith must decide between staying on in her job or continue down the rabbit hole and risk losing who she is.
