Watch Photographing Fairies

This story, having been retold in several different ways on film, is loosely based on the story of two young British girls who, in 1917, swore that they had captured fairies prancing in their garden on camera. In this adaptation, a young man, Charles, has recently married his bride, Anne-Marie. But tragedy strikes her when she falls into an ice fissure.

Heartbroken, he joins the war as a photographer working in the trenches and photographing dead bodies, never forgetting Anne-Marie and desperately wishing he could speak to her again. One day, a woman named Bea gives him a photograph that was taken of an alleged fairy outside of her home in the British countryside.

Curious, Charles travels to the Bea's countryside village home to see the garden of the alleged sighting. Inexplicably, Bea dies shortly after Charles's arrival, and he becomes possessed by the idea of talking with the fairy in the photograph, thinking that by doing so he would be able to talk with Anne-Marie again.

His investigation and efforts in Burkinwell uncover many secrets in the village, while at the same time he discovers some answers and finds a bit of peace in the countryside home's garden.
