It was a random winter weekend getaway in beautiful Wales. Three travellers.. an American traveller Shamus and a French couple Marie and Paul travel to Swansea for their own different, personal and very important reasons. Their desire was to take a break away from their difficulties.
Shamus is on a tour around Europe on his own. Marie and Paul travel together for a weekend break. The American and the couple haven’t met before but their paths crossed at the Music Fable Hotel.. a music themed boutique hotel overlooking the stunning beach of Swansea Bay. It seems that all three have gone through some traumatic experiences in the past and they are trying to deal with them in their own way.
Shamus came across Dylan Thomas’ poem “And Death Shall have No Dominion. Dylan’s powerful poetic words.. about suffering, reflecting, healing, living.. resonate with Shamus. He feels “awaken”.. his senses heightened.. his soul flooded with overwhelming emotions. He is so drawn into it.. some kind of “poetic” transcendence.. he reads the poem aloud without realising it.
Marie over hears Shamus’ reading and she joins him. Paul walks in.. a moment of awkwardness.. he joins them. Shamus does not know what Marie and Paul have gone through but he can see in their lives their pain and sadness. He decides to carry on reading.
Will those “borrowed” words help Shamus? Will they affect Marie and Paul? Will the sorrow end? Will the healing begin? Is that brief interaction between the three travellers their destiny?
