The Story of Elfrida is a medieval fantasy film, based in two time periods, which follows two adventurers through the ruins of a kingdom.

by Maisie Watkins in Bournemouth, England, United Kingdom


The Story of Elfrida follows Blaith and Prija, two young explorers, as they discover the tragic tale of the last Queen of Tulworth, and uncover a version of history that they never knew existed! 

We begin with our explorers, joining them as they delve into the ruins of a great palace, and follow them through their journey of discovery. Simultaneously, we are seeing the history of Tulworth through flashbacks, following Elfrida, the last Queen, seeing her coronation and reign.
