While in Wales visiting her husband James, Adèlle tries to fix her relationship with her teenager daughter Sarah. They see a weird memorial without the plate and with the name "Annwyn" marked, and the local Dafydd explains that this would be the place where people go after dying in accordance with the Welsh mythology. Later, Sarah vanishes on the beach and the daughter of the local fanatic shepherd, Ebrill, who died fifty years ago, appears in her place. Adele makes a research trying to find how to rescue her daughter from Annway. Written by

The concept of "Annwn" (Annwyn) is not made up especially for the film or the book on which it was based. "Annwn" is an underworld or other world found in Welsh legend, a land of the dead. It is said to lay far in the west and could be accessed by the living through a door located at the mouth of the Severn once a year. Surviving from pre-Christian Celtic mythology, it's neither Heaven nor Hell in the Christian sense, humans can enter spiritually or corporeally. This is the first film about Annwn. See more »

What is with the mom and dad? Are they separated? Obvious tension, but would you stay somewhere with your soon-to-be ex? Although the mom is crazy over-protective, we are supposed to think she is Satan because she got some action one night and left a 13 year-old alone? Not good, but not unforgivable. So bad that Sarah tries to kill herself?! If it is a life for a life, why do a dozen people throw themselves off the rocks just to get Ebrill back? I think a good ending would be getting Sarah back, but not being able to come back herself - not happy, but good. Then Sarah would be messed up like Ebrill. Ebrill was sickly, but not evil until she came back. I guess I've thought too much about it. It just had potential! I liked the whole Annwyr premise. Why couldn't they make that work?
