Easter. Port Talbot is in a battle for its life. Authoritarian forces have taken over and the town is in thrall to a sinister and heartless corporation, ICU, which puts profit before people in its quest to plunder the town’s resources. When a company man and a suicide bomber clash on the beach, catastrophe is only averted by the intervention of a softly spoken loner with no memory. He is later revealed as ‘The Teacher’, a local man who disappeared 40 days earlier but has now returned.
As he gathers followers around him, he is perceived by ICU as a danger who must be removed at all costs.
Written by Owen Sheers (author of the international best-seller Resistance), this is the film version of the ground-breaking theatre event by National Theatre Wales which took place across Port Talbot in April 2011, with the people of the town as its cast, crew and heroes.
"One of the outstanding theatrical events not only of this year, but of the decade" - The Observer
