Apprentice Capstone Project

The Fox

by Allan Miller
based on the novella
by D.H. Lawrence


In the rolling hills of post-WWI England, Nellie and Jill live a quiet life on their isolated farm. When a fox starts raiding the henhouse, their livelihood is threatened. Seemingly from nowhere, a soldier arrives promising to eradicate the problem in exchange for refuge. But will this stranger prove to be the biggest predator they have ever faced? Tensions build to explosive consequences in this taut thriller.
