Synopsis

Against a backdrop of racial tension and industrial unrest in the Welsh Valleys of 1911, Solomon and Gaenor tells the moving and passionate story of illicit love between a Welsh girl and a Jewish boy. Gaenor, born into a family of strict chapel-goers, falls for Solomon, a young pedlar, who conceals his Jewish identity from Gaenor and her family. The couple, from similar yet very distinctive worlds, fall helplessly in love. The odds are against them, however, as the outraged community in which they live, conspires to destroy their fragile happiness.
