Set in 1976 on a wild piece of English coastline somewhere in the north-west, The Loney follows fifteen-year-old Tonto and his older brother, Hanny, as they embark on their annual pilgrimage with their parents, a Catholic priest and a collection of other oddballs, to visit a nearby shrine. Hanny’s parents hope the shrine will cure their son of his seemingly severe learning difficulties and muteness. They are holed up in an old house that, twice a day, is engulfed by a murderous tide while a mystery hangs over the group following the death of last year’s priest. Murkier yet are a couple staying at a house across the bay with a – possibly underage- heavily pregnant girl in a wheelchair.
