No Premiere PREMIERE



A contemporary reworking of a traditional Scottish folktale, narrated by the legendary folklorist Margaret Bennett. A hunter is summoned to slay a terrifying beast, and on the shore of a loch between two barren mountains, the hunter becomes cursed by the beast. The hunter’s body is magically transformed into that of a black dog. Only one thing can happen… The spell must be broken. And so the mysterious adventure begins after our protagonist makes a pact with a selkie. Learning how to break the spell the hunter-dog sets off on an adventure to the lonely island in the centre of the loch. Will the hunter break the curse?
