Welcome to Edgecombe St. Mary‚ a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills and thatched cottages. There Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) leads a quiet life valuing the things that Englishmen have lived by for generations: honor‚ duty‚ decorum‚ and a properly brewed cup of tea. But then his brother’s death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali‚ the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village.
