Synopsis

Bitter Sweet is a contemporary love story set in Cornwall.

Becky and Jack were madly in love once, but drugs got in the way. She cheated him out of a deal, and to make matters worse, shopped him to the police.

When Jack is released from prison, he sets out to find her. The role of the avenging angel greatly appeals to him. A Penzance solicitor with a social conscience does his best to help Jack, but he just wants to get even with Becky. His love for her has turned into an unhealthy obsession, and now, hatred. She, in the meantime, turns tricks for money, working under the cover of an aromatherapist.

It is not long before he finds her amongst the sand dunes of Hayle, and he shoots Becky with his air pistol. She falls to the ground, crying out in pain.

There is a small graze on her arm. He offers to kiss it better. One kiss leads to another and the young lovers soon make up their differences. They are oblivious of a total eclipse passing over their heads. As the sun re-emerges they walk into the brilliant clear light.
