descriptionIn a last ditch attempt to pull her family back together, New Yorker Adelle (MARIA BELLO) travels with her young daughter Sarah (SOPHIE STUCKEY) to Wales – to see her estranged husband James (SEAN BEAN) and try to patch their lives back together in the surroundings of an old cliff-top farmhouse. But Adelle's worst nightmares are realised when, days into the trip, Sarah is tragically swept out to sea, pulled into the dark depths despite her mother's desperate attempts to save her. While James leads the search for Sarah's body, a guilt-ridden Adelle is haunted by visions and traces of her daughter – it's almost as if Sarah is trapped somewhere in the house itself. Learning of an ancient local legend of a place called The Dark – an ethereal land of the dead that is a distorted mirror image of the real world - Adelle becomes convinced Sarah is trying to communicate to her from this sinister parallel universe. When she finds a strange little girl named Ebrill (ABIGAIL STONE) in Sarah's bed, Adelle is sure she's the key to getting her daughter back. For the legend dictates that the departed can be returned from The Dark if a sacrifice is made – one of the living for one of the dead. And if Ebrill is who she says she is, she died over fifty years before. But all James can see in his wife is a woman in the depths of despair and on the very edge of sanity. To him, Ebrill is a runaway, nothing more. However, when local farmer and handyman Daffyd (MAURICE ROEVES) recognises Ebrill from his own shadowy childhood, one filled with stark memories of a rural pagan cult, Adelle knows her suspicions are true. And she takes the ultimate leap of faith – throwing herself into the ocean, and into The Dark itself, in her frantic attempt to reclaim her daughter's life.
