'Newfoundland' is a chronicle of self-discovery; of a community of people given the chance to change their lives. It charts the story of a transforming landscape - the home that they tear down and recreate.
Ynys-morlan is tiny, isolated on a floodplain, caught against the Welsh coastline. The tourist trade is fading, the buildings eroding, the street empty when Charlotte Weyland first sees it.
Thirty-three million pounds could offer opportunity without restriction - could provide a future that no one in Ynys-morlan has ever imagined. Enough to recreate every single salt-worn home, enough to bring the possibility of redemption, it could make Ynys-morlan a canvas on to which the hidden stories behind every front door couldn't help but overspill.
