Edge of the Land

A heartbreaking story amidst the 1953 floods

Miriam is from a town recently hit by the 1953 floods, but it is not just the sea that has invaded people's homes: a spirit of cold post-war austerity stalks the land and has a grip on their hearts. Moving through the 50s, 60s and 70s, Alan Franks' tale of a woman trying to trace the daughter she was forced to give up for adoption is guaranteed to pierce the hardest heart.

With an atmospheric music score and a quartet of scorching performances, THE EDGE OF THE LAND will have you on the edge of tears and your seat.
