This is a very sweet movie, set in the beautiful Cornwall countryside. It is a simple tale, based on a short story by 19th century Victorian era serial novelist Anthony Trollope. Orphaned Mally Tringlos (Veronica Quilligan) gathers seaweed in a cove on the coast of Cornwall, and supports her aged and crippled grandfather Malachi (Donald Pleasance) by selling it as fertilizer. She lives a desolate life of the hardest physical labor, hewing a narrow, dangerous path down the cliff side, and harnessing herself like an animal to drag back the heavy weed. ~imdb
