Synopsis

Anna, a shy and awkward 12-year-old, finds it difficult to fit in, and when her anxiety-related asthma becomes more serious her foster mother sends her away to recover with relatives in the country. Initially unsure of herself but encouraged by her aunt and uncle, Anna befriends a mute boatman who lets her borrow his rowboat to explore her new surroundings. Drawn to a mysterious abandoned mansion on the other side of the marsh, Anna meets a spirited girl her own age called Marnie, and a deep friendship develops that Marnie makes her promise to keep secret.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
