A ghost story of sorts, this tragic tale recounts the blossoming romance of two lovers whose relationship is torn asunder by the vagaries of war. When they reunite by chance years later, there is nothing left to be salvaged.

From the world of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, the major BBC production. Faerie is never as far away as you think.
