Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Rex Ryan in Jumping Hedges

‘Jumping Hedges’ by Philip Davison, directed by Cathal Black. Aired on RTÉ on 2014


Florrie is in business with Justin. She’s also in love with him. The love, however, is unrequited, and their little firm is about to go under. Against her better judgment, she takes to the skies for a hot air balloon ride with Larry, Justin’s father and potential benefactor. He’s a formidable self-made man and a lush. Adrift in the basket above golf links, farmland, drumlins and lakes, Larry gives Florrie a lesson in tough love, loyalty and sharp business practice.
