Time and Tide is a trilogy about how we approach the past, reconcile it with the present, and face the future.

Across the years, a mother watches her gladiator son fight, while she remembers his childhood: the last lighthouse keeper prepares for his final trip ashore: and an actor returns to the stage to play his part in a Greek myth.

The trilogy opens with The Arena, with renowned actor Greta Scacchi giving an emotional performance as she tells the tale of a gladiator fighting for his life, while his mother looks on, recalling happier times.

The second film in the sequence, The Last Lighthouse Keeper, stars experienced character actor John Locke as he relates the keeper’s adventures from the invention of the lighthouse, to eventual redundancy.

In the final film, Homecoming, star of stage and screen Samuel West plays an actor returning to the theatre after a long absence, to take the role of Odysseus - who found that after an epic journey home, he had new trials to overcome.
