Helfa’r Heli


This is a story of timeless love, with a twist in the tale. As Dylan cares for his dying wife, Gwen, he relives bittersweet memories of their long and happy life together. Dawn breaks and Gwen dies. Returning to the sea shore where they first met, Dylan allows the waves to claim him. The screenplay is based on the short story that won first prize in the 2014 Rhys Davies Short Story Competition.
