A haunting drama that follows Sara (Hannah Murray - Game of Thrones) and her dad, Dave, as they arrive in a small village haunted by suicides of its young inhabitants.. Sara falls dangerously in love with one of the teenagers, Jamie, while Dave as the town’s new policeman tries to stop the mysterious chain of suicides. The film is an uncompromising story focused on the relationship between vulnerable teenagers and their parents who are left in the dark.. The story of the film is based on a mysterious suicide cluster that took place in Bridgend County, a small former coal-mining province in Wales. Between December 2007 and January 2012 seventy-nine suicides were officially committed in the area. Most of the victims were teenagers, they hanged themselves and left no suicide notes. Danish documentary filmmaker, Jeppe Rønde, followed the teenagers from the area for six years and wrote the script based on their life stories.. Winner of "Best Editing", "Best Cinematography" and "Best Actress" - Tribeca Film Festival. "An unimaginable reality is brought to the brink of clarity -- only to plunge right back into a psychological abyss -- in Danish helmer Jeppe Ronde's potent, pain-ridden Bridgend."- Guy Lodge, Variety
