Success with Sweet Peas is a short surreal animated documentary about competitive sweet pea growing in Shropshire. Growers, showers and arrangers talk about the irresistible lure of the sweet pea, combined with imagery evoking the quintessentially English pursuit of flower perfection.
"It's a lovely little pea, that."
