A short film inspired by John Harries (1785-1839), a physician and ‘Cunning Man’ – a healer who uses folklore magic.
The film tells the story of an elderly and mysterious farmer who drifts through the Welsh valleys collecting dead animals.
Refusing the services of the local abattoir’s collector, what he has in store for these creatures is beyond anyone’s imagination. An enchanted tale in the face of callous greed.
