THE BALLAD OF BETTY FRENCH

Synopsis

Wild rumours abound concerning an eccentric, elderly woman from south Wales.

86-year-old Betty French has a barn on a hill where she looks after rescued animals. The arrival of the filmmaker, who is allowed to stay in exchange for helping out on the farm, unearths some stories about Betty and the history of the barn. After she is reported to the Ministry by a woman from the village who is concerned about the size and condition of her bullocks, Betty is reluctantly forced to make some major changes to her way of life.
