Swept From The Sea
Epic, elemental, passionate and tragic, Swept From The Sea is a romantic tale that pitches the mortality of man against the immortality of nature.
To the world, Amy Foster is a girl who never smiles, but beneath her passive exterior, there is hidden passion. Amy is a pagan spirit, a collector of gifts from the sea. Her world is irrevocably changed when the sea delivers the most beautiful and most impossible of gifts.
Yanko Gooral is an adventurer who has left his Ukrainian homeland in search of a new world - America. When Yanko is washed overboard by a murderous tempest he finds himself a stranger in hostile land. When he crosses the threshold into Amy's world, however, they form a bond too powerful to be broken by the hate and suspicion the ignorant masses of Cornwall rain down on them.
Based on the short story by Joseph Conrad, Swept From The Sea tells a powerful and vital story about the transformative power of love and the resiliency of the human heart.
