In the stark beauty of 19th Century Snowdonia a young girl, Gwen, tries desperately to hold her home together. Struggling with her mother’s mysterious illness, her father’s absence and a ruthless mining company encroaching on their land, a growing darkness begins to take grip of her home and the suspicious local community turns on Gwen and her family.
William McGregor’s atmospheric and exquisitely crafted gothic period drama stars newcomer Eleanor Worthington-Cox (Laurence Olivier Award winning actress of MATILDA and BAFTA nominated for THE ENFIELD HAUNTING) in the break out performance of the year. The film also stars BAFTA nominated actress Maxine Peake (FUNNY COW, PETERLOO) and Richard Harrington (HINTERLAND, SPOOKS & POLDARK)
"Worthington-Cox is terrific; the mounting uncertainty in her eyes seeds the suspicion of wrongdoing throughout the film."
Wendy Ide, Screen International
