ANWELEDIG


Aled Jones Williams’ gripping drama about a woman’s intense battle with depression.

Healing is messy. And illness is strangely tidy.

A powerful and harrowing Welsh language production that follows the journey of Glenda, played by Ffion Dafis, as she struggles to deal with this invisible illness.

We follow Glenda’s fiercely personal anguish as she confronts the illness and faces life outside of hospital. How will she, her family and friends deal with the traumatic reality of recovery? Will she find light at the end of the tunnel?

This final instalment brings closure to the Anweledig series inspired by medical records from the old Denbigh mental health hospital in North Wales.


CAST: Ffion Dafis
