After seeing off her other children to school, a mother, Haydn Gwynne (Peak Practice), and son embark on a day trip together. Settling on a hillside over looking the countryside, it soon becomes clear that her son is not made of flesh and blood: he is the memory of her unborn child who died 5 months into her pregnancy.

Every year the mother makes the journey to remember her lost son but this will be the last time that she will make this journey, as she finally learns to move on from her painful experience.

Lullaby was directed by Kevin Markwick and produced by Kent residents Elaine Wickham and Jan Dunn of Maeve (Medb) Films who are based in Ramsgate and they have made a number of films in their own right including Gypo, Ruby Blue and The Calling.

It was filmed largely on Kent’s coast, within the shadow of the Reculver Towers, remains of a medieval church, where local legend has it, the cry of an infant may be heard occasionally above the waves.  Reculver  was also used for filming by The Medusa Touch (1978)

The film was screened a variety of festivals.
