Synopsis

Wales, 1911. In a tough time in a tough place, Solomon meets Gaenor. She comes from a mining family, his family sells cheap clothes. She goes to church, and he's Jewish, although she doesn't know that. She speaks Welsh at home and he speaks Yiddish, so it’s just as well that the connection between them is so strong it feels like it can overcome the obstacles stuck in their way by history, politics, religion and geography. Strong performances plus a real sense of place make this a powerful and different romantic drama. Cymru, 1911. Mewn cyfnod heriol, mewn lleoliad annisgwyl, mae Solomon yn cwrdd â Gaenor. Daw Gaenor o gartref o lowyr, a gwerthu dillad rhad yw gwaith teulu Solomon. Mae Gaenor a’i theulu yn mynychu’r eglwys yn rheolaidd ac Iddew yw Solomon, er nad yw e’n cyfaddef hyn iddi hi. Cymraeg yw ei hiaith hi ac Iddeweg yw ei iaith e. Ond, er gwaetha’r holl wahaniaethau diwylliannol, crefyddol, gwleidyddol a daearyddol hyn, mae eu cariad yn blaguro. Mae’r perfformiadau gafaelgar a’r ymdeimlad o berthyn yn y ffilm hon yn ei gwneud hi’n ffilm ramantaidd a phwerus.
