Written and directed by musician Martha Tilston, this is a film with music at its heart. Tilston was recently nominated for Best Arts Programme at the Celtic Media Festival for her film ‘Cliff Top Sessions’, her film includes her next album. With a voice like spiderwebbed hollows and lyrics that inspire and captivate, Tilston has developed a successful musical career with a large and loyal following worldwide.
Tally Green, Cornwall’s worst cleaner, is living in a van and making ends meet. When she gets a job at an empty cliff-top house, she finds her inspiration renewed and records a single analogue copy of her new album recording it on an old 4-track machine. When corporate lawyer Leo is drawn into Tally’s world of music and mythology, the implications ricochet through both their lives with the tape acting as a talisman, helping those who encounter it to truly come alive – think ‘ONCE’ but in the windswept world of Cornwall with themes of staying true to yourself and taking bold steps towards happiness.
