Among the stark beauty of mid-19th Century Snowdonia, a young girl, Gwen, tries desperately to hold her home together. While her father is away in the army, Gwen and her mother (Maxine Peake) scrape a hard living from their small upland farm. But their land is coveted by a ruthless mine owner, and soon mysterious ‘accidents’ happen to their crops and livestock. When her mother falls ill in church, the suspicious local community turns on Gwen and her family, and a growing darkness begins to take grip of her home.

“William McGregor’s debut feature is an eerie hybrid of gothic drama and social realism.” The Guardian.
