Logline
From the natural landscape of Ireland to arid Ethiopia, WILD is a story of love,
passion, determination and triumph. A revolutionary landscape architect proves
that nature cannot be contained - it is wild.
Short Synopsis
Wild is the story of one woman who sowed the seed of change...
It tells the extraordinary and uplifting true story of Irishwoman Mary Reynold’s
journey from rank outsider to winner of a Gold Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Mary grew up with a strong affinity to the environment and a belief that somehow it
was her destiny to use her talent as a designer to put environmental issues centre
stage. Wild follows her journey from naive and impressionable ingenue to a
impassioned and pioneering deisgner. Along the way, she gathers a team of
eccentric and unconventional artisans whom she believes fully understand her
vision and the are only ones who have the ability to execute her plan for a wild
garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
As this rag tag and bobtail crew begin their work in the intensively competitive but
uniquely conservative and establishment atmosphere of Cheslea, the other
competitors are amused at their methods and sneer at her crew of ‘hippies’. Soon
however they realise that unconventional does not mean uncompetitive, and are
forced to reassess their view when ultimately she triumphs and takes the top prize.
Theme
“People travel the world over to visit untouched places of natural beauty, yet
modern gardens pay little heed to the simplicity and beauty of these
environments… those special places we must preserve and protect, each in his own
way, before they are lost forever.”
- Mary Reynolds, Chelsea Competition Application, 2002
Wild is a biopic which tells the inspiring true story of Mary Reynolds, a young Irish
landscape designer, who despite huge personal and professional obstacles, won a
Gold Medal at the 2002 Chelsea Flower Show. It was inspired by her freethinking
commitment to preserving the environment and our wild heritage, an approach
which put her at odds with the hidebound conventions of the Chelsea hierarchy
but won the hearts of both judges and the public.
The natural environment is at the centre of this story. The film’s subject matter
presents an Irish perspective on the critically important climate change debate, in
an accessible and uplifting manner.

Long Synopsis
From the wilds of the west of Ireland to drought ravaged Ethiopia and eventually
the claustrophobic atmosphere of London’s Chelsea Flower, WILD is a romantic and
uplifting underdog story with an ecological theme. It tells the true, victory-againstall-odds story of Mary Reynolds - a brilliant young Irish landscape designer, who, with
no money and no powerful connections, wins the much-coveted gold medal at the
“Olympics of Gardening” - the Chelsea Flower Show – beating Prince Charles into
second place.
Mary, an artistic Irish country girl, moves with trepidation to Dublin. She is treated like
Cinderella by her first employer, Charlotte, a conniving rock-chick florist. A skilled
self-promoter, Charlotte passes off Mary’s unique landscape designs as her own to
her movie and rock star clients. Mary, awkward and ill-at-ease, is in awe of
Charlotte and her scene.
As well as giving Mary a “real politik” education on social climbing, Charlotte
unwittingly does Mary one life changing favour – she takes her to the Olympics of
Gardening – the famous Chelsea Flower Show – a mecca for green-fingered
celebrities and royalty alike. Mary dreams of changing the world through her
ecological landscape designs, but when Charlotte suddenly marries the richest
man in England, Mary is out of a job and broke.
Naively impassioned, Mary seeks to blaze her own trail by entering the Chelsea
Flower Show with her Celtic Sanctuary design - a mystical wild garden which
promotes the retention of natural habitats. But the stuffy Chelsea Administrator
responsible for admissions repeatedly refuses to send her an application form.
Through ingenuity, kindness and a few blatant lies, Mary’s garden is selected as one
of only eight to compete at Chelsea out of more than 2,000 applications
worldwide. But with the competition deadline fast approaching, Mary can find
neither the necessary sponsorship of £250,000, nor a contractor with the rare skills to
build her Celtic Sanctuary.
In a West Cork wild flower sanctuary, Future Forests, Mary finds the only man who
can help build her Chelsea dreams. He is none other than the handsome,
charismatic botanist Christy, a mesmerizing musician she first saw at a Charlotte’s
party.
Mary desperately pitches her project to Christy and his crew - the Green Angels –
New Age dropouts who are based in West Cork. In an effort to get reluctant,
cynical Christy on side, she enthralls his hippie king father, Mike, with her “wild”
design, and her passion to wake the world up to retain what few natural habitats
4
are left.
Christy, irritated by his father’s infatuation with Mary, remains unimpressed by her
cause, committed only to his irrigation projects in drought-stricken Ethiopia. The two
clash. Christy believes Mary to be naïve and celebrity seeking and won’t let his
Green Angel crew work on her project. Christy’s philandering and his lack of faith in
her plan causes emotional havoc for Mary, she is devastated. But something in
Mary refuses to give up.
She impulsively follows Christy to Ethiopia in the hope of getting him back to fulfill
her Chelsea dreams. Once in Ethiopia, Mary encounters man-made environmental
disaster at close range, and is shaken beyond her own ambition.
Sadly, she gives up on Chelsea and throws herself into Christy’s oasis build. Mary
redesigns the plans, and together she and Christy build the Lalibela oasis as a
model for arresting desertification. Christy’s grows to respect Mary’s Gaia-spirited
designs as well as Mary herself. And so, Christy finds himself in love for the first time;
he plans their future together in Ethiopia.
But for Mary, a mountaintop epiphany above the desert leads her back to her
destiny.
Emboldened by the Ethiopian experience, she draws back from Christy emotionally,
realizing he must now prove himself worthy as she has proven herself to him. At the
eleventh hour, Mary secures Christy’s support for her Chelsea bid.
The two return to Ireland, frenzied by the fast approaching Chelsea deadline.
Miraculously, just enough money is secured to compete, but Mary now faces the
problems of transporting a sheep field, 500 wild plant species, 200 year old
hawthorns and tons of ancient stone wall from Cork to London.
These difficulties are small compared to managing the hippie crew, Christy’s
eccentric father, dying plants and water disinfectant. These problems are
compounded by malevolent competitor Charlotte, and the spiteful snobbery of the
Chelsea Administrator. After repeated threats of disqualification, Mary’s unique
wild garden magically comes to life.
The night before judging, romance finally blossoms between Mary and Christy
along with the ancient Irish hawthorns. In joyous disbelief, Mary wins a gold medal,
beating Prince Charles into the silver. Through the Prince’s gracious influence, Mary
becomes the first designer for 250 years since Capability Brown, to have her own
wild garden built at the famous Royal Kew Gardens.
And so Mary Reynolds, an Irish country girl, made gardening history. She proved that
nature cannot be contained – it is wild.

Biographies
Vivienne DeCourcy – Director/Writer
Vivienne De Courcy was inspired to write the script for WILD after meeting Mary
Reynolds in 2006 on the design of her own garden in West Cork. WILD became the
first part of the EARTH TRILOGY, the second and third of which are the sci-fi dramas
TREE and BREATHE.
After graduating in law from UCD in Dublin, Vivienne obtained a doctorate in
Jurisprudence at IIT Chciago, with a concentration in corporate finance and
construction law, and was admitted to the Illinois Bar. She became a corporate
finance attorney in Chicago, working on mergers and acquisitions, venture
capital, leverage buyouts, and large scale loans for Lord, Bissell and Brook lawfirm,
and finally, a major financial institution, Allstate, where she represented the lead
lender on international transactions including financing such global Irish companies
Smurfit Industries and CRH.
She also worked for The Brain Research Foundation putting on art exhibitions such as
Art and the Brain, Chicago. In 1998, retired from law, she wrote, directed and
produced her first independent film, Fiona’s Fortune, which enabled her to become
a member of the Director’s Guild of America.
Having written creatively for over 15 years, from poetry to articles, she put her
writing and problem solving skills to political speechwriting, ultimately working on
the 1992 Clinton Campaign for the Head of Advance.
In 2001 she returned to Dublin after 16 years putting deals together in the US. She
continued practising law, and is now putting her transactional expertise and wide
financial connections into producing WILD. She directed Little Mary, the Teasor,
which enabled her to raise funding for the film along with a mock up of the original
Celtic Sanctuary garden and a rough cut of out-takes which will be used in the film
to demonstrate the magnitue of Mary Reynolds task and the extrodinary nature of
the Olympics of Gardening – the Chelsea Flower Show.
