Clouds Obscure The Sky

1936 , Derby (Derbyshire)

Young city love is hit by a rural tragedy.

Amateur filmmaker and cinema historian H.A.V. Bulleid presents this story of young love blossoming in the city, only to be interrupted by a trip to the country. As love blossoms between a young couple, every moment apart thinking of each other. Finally meeting again for a trip to the cinema, they share a pleasant moonlit stroll, full of anticipation for the day ahead. Catching a bus the following morning, the pair disembark to find a secluded spot in the countryside. Moving over increasingly rocky terrain, they come to a small mountain lake. But in striving for a better vantage point, the man slips and hits his head on a rock. With his face covered in blood and struggling to see, he and the girl must find their way out of seclusion and back to the city.
