We are very excited to be screening this just down the road from TAPE’s base in Colwyn Bay. And what’s more – this is the official launch for the film before it goes on general release! 

During their golden wedding weekend away, Edward and Violet Knights are brutally separated, triggering a wife’s desperate pursuit of her abducted husband through an increasingly frightening and unfamiliar world. 

The film is a TAPE Community Music and Film production. TAPE is a charity which uses quality, original creative projects to support the engagement, involvement, training and employment of people of all ages, through an inclusive, collective and person-centred production model.
