Description
A man facing a protracted terminal illness comes to a deserted beach, despondent and raging. A mysterious woman tells him of the place's history: nearby, in the fifth century, Dwynwen, maid-in-waiting to the queen, deserted her faithless lover to live alone, away from deceitful humanity. Dwynwen appears with her nurse, who attempts to coax her home; in enlisting the man's support she opens his eyes to the love of others which will help him through his ordeal.
