Eldra

SYNOPSIS

Based on a true story, Eldra Jarman (Iona Jones) is a spirited young girl who cannot concentrate on her studies. Instead, her imagination focuses endlessly — and fittingly — on a fox she’s seen running wild.

Over summer vacation, this wild child visits family in a small village, where she effortlessly garners the attention of a posh young man named Robat (Gareth Wyn Roberts) and his dour older brother, Taid (John Ogwen). Her Gypsy-like whimsy soon brings her much attention.
