The clandestine world of crop circles is threatened when an ambitious TV journalist plans to expose the truth drawing her into the enigma of lights, Celtic mythology and UFOs to discover both the beauty and danger in the mystery she seeks.
To call Honeystreet a village is generous but this tiny canal side hamlet not far from Stonehenge is Crop Circle Grand Central Station. Frustrated Brazilian TV Journalist Lara has been sent on a "nonsense mission" to the heart of the English countryside with Yossi, a war-torn Cameraman, to discover the truth about these mysterious formations. There they meet long-term investigator, the elusive and broken Hatter, desperate to reconnect with his son Dean. Only the local barmaid Aideen seems to know the truth about this clandestine world, but if she does she's in no hurry to tell.

This is the first film I've seen from Jonnie Hurn and Ian Manson and I was impressed. The filming and direction was a marked difference from the sanitised Hollywood style genre and instead gave a raw insight into the very interesting subject matter: crop circles. From the beginning you are taken along a journey as the journalist gradually uncovers the world of crop circles, which then of course then comes to an interesting conclusion (trying to not give anything away).
At first the film does seem patchy and a series of events, but the story gradually ties all of these parts together to allow you to see the big picture of the world of crop circles. The subject is supposed to be secretive and slightly confusing so this film hits the spot perfectly. You feel the emotion of the characters as they develop through to story and the filming really makes you feel part of the excitement and secret club! I felt like I really was on the trip with them all and finding out the secrets as we went along.
Having seen the direction and writing style I will certainly be seeking other films by these writers and directors.
