One hot summer’s day, Rose (newcomer Zamira Fuller) longs to see her mum (Beth Orton) but nobody will take her. Her father, struggling to cope, disappears to work, her sister waits to meet a boy on the local golf course and her brother is preoccupied at home communing with spirits online.
Taking destiny into her own hands she sets off alone deep into England’s forgotten edge lands to reach her. Rose’s odyssey provokes her disconnected, fractured siblings and parents into a poignant reunion to face their challenges together.
Light Years is the debut feature from BAFTA award winning film maker and photographer Esther May Campbell and features the acting debut of acclaimed singer/songwriter Beth Orton and a cast of young newcomers. Light Years is a poetic and startling story of loss, hope and the deepest of human connections.
