Three youngsters dive into coastal waters and discover a floating island that transports them to an ancient time of magic, evil curses and potent jealousies
Various Welsh legends come to life when three youngsters dive into coastal waters and discover a floating island that transports them to an ancient time of magic, evil curses and potent jealousies.
The direction of the live action bookends to this unimpressive but well-meaning piece of TV animation is unforgivably shoddy, with the links between the contemporary characters and their mythic counterparts tenuous, to say the least.
The cartoon tales themselves fare a little better, although, for the uninitiated, they form a confusing and rather rushed introduction to this particular folklore. It's not even as if the animation is of a sufficiently eye-catching style to merit a cinema release - when computer effects briefly enter the fray, the results are appalling. There's a place for it as a Friday afternoon treat during history lessons in Welsh schools, but that's as far as it goes.
