SUMMERLAND follows the story of fiercely independent folklore investigator, Alice (Gemma Arterton) who secludes herself in her clifftop study, debunking myths using science to disprove the existence of magic. Consumed by her work, but also profoundly lonely, she is changed when spirited young Frank (Lucas Bond), an evacuee from the London Blitz, is placed into her care.
A beautiful film that shows wounds can be healed, second chances do occur, and that, just perhaps - magic really does exist.
