"Jones gives Eldra some real moxie, and she grows on the viewer, as does the thoroughly cute Roberts." - Variety


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.
