When the strong-minded Flora Poste loses her parents and her financial security, she moves in with her eccentric and wild relatives at the broken-down Cold Comfort Farm. There, Flora transforms the decrepit building into a vibrant, elegantly decorated home and the untamed family into a group of sophisticated, successful adults.
When a young society woman from London becomes suddenly orphaned she's forced to take up residence with a group of her unsophisticated, oddball relatives at their farm. Despite protests from the bedridden, iron-willed matriarch of the farm, the aspiring lass tries to achieve some semblance of order and class in the house. From the novel by Stella Gibbons.
