GHOSTS OF BEDLAM.

Royston Chatsworth is a documentary film-maker. He and Rachel Walters, a Civil Servant, are looking for premises, in which to film a then-and-now example of mental health care. The ward they are shown in an empty asylum stirs memories in Royston of past events in his life and the prodding of his conscience by the nurse-turned- caretaker and the appearance of a former inmate, who seems to haunt the place, brings about a change in Royston’s priorities and plans.

Cast: 1 M 3 F.
