Peter Hewitt directs this children's classic based on the novels of Mary Norton. The Clock family are 'borrowers' - four inch-high people who live under the floorboards of a big house, borrowing whatever they need from the 'human beans' who own it. However, when evil property developer Ocious P. Potter (John Goodman) decides to get rid of the house, tiny Pod (Jim Broadbent) and Homily Clock (Celia Imrie) must use all their resourcefulness to thwart him.
