A Place to Stay

Synopsis

A tragic love story between a traveller and a Gypsy woman, set against a backdrop of rural prejudice, brought together by mysterious crop formations appearing in the magical landscape around them. A tale of fate and human capacity for endurance in an uncaring world
 
The West Country is a part of England that evokes ancient memories. The sacred land of Stonehenge, crop-circles and Ley-lines. Along these ancient roads have come strangers, itinerants and Gypsies. People mistreated by society because of their beliefs and values. A way of life where people come before property and financial value, and where others are judged by what they are rather than what they look like or what they have.
 
Choosing to flee the decay of the big cities, hiding themselves away in woods and secluded pieces of farmland, these travellers live on the outskirts of an antagonistic society.
 
A Place to Stay is a heartbreaking story of star-crossed lovers, set in a magical landscape that is all too quickly slipping away. It is about the grandest and most humble aspects of human life, about fate, and how people manage to live in an uncaring world by creating ideals by which to live, and dreams to live for. It's about people, the planet and beyond.
