Rating: 6

Loosely based on the story of Eyam in Derbyshire, the story of the village through the eyes of one of it’s inhabitants, Anna, is a tale of how the townspeople, under the leadership of their priest, chose to isolate themselves after the plague occurred. By doing so, they prevented its spread, but at great personal cost.
