He plans a dawn raid to steal a stack of beehives, so they can finally get their dream caravan. However, the bee-keeper, already hit twice, has other ideas. Set in the current agricultural crisis surrounding the worlds rapidly decreasing bee population, The Hive is a traditional British story with a twist.Short fact:Brian Percival (Downtown Abbey, Emmy Award Winning Director) mentored Ed Lilly on The Hive and had this to say about the film "Brilliant, really brilliant.
