Full film details

Struggling to make ends meet on a small farm in mid-19th Century Snowdonia, teenage Gwen (Eleanor Worthington-Cox) lives with her mother, Elen (Maxine Peake), and her younger sister, Mari (Jodie Innes).

The father of the family is away at war, and Elen is struggling with a mysterious, worsening illness, with the females depending on the kindness of a local doctor (Kobna Holdbrook-Smith) to provide free medicine for Elen’s condition. All the while, the industrial revolution is motoring on, and a mining company is after the family’s farm.

Elen stands up to the mining company, keeping her grasp on the land. Yet, the miner owners get continually more violent in their determination to take it for their own. As dark events swirl around the family, can they endure? Can they survive?

Eleanor Worthington-Cox (Maleficent, Britannia) stars in this dark period drama, alongside Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Peterloo), Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Mary Poppins Returns, Paddington 2, Justice League), and newcomer Jodie Innes. William McGregor (Poldark, The Missing) directs this story of a family of women desperately fighting against the forces that threaten them.
