One Grain of Sand was filmed over a single Autumn & Winter and is a short portrait of lone climbing and walking in the Dark Peak of the Derbyshire moorlands. The film showcases stunning Peak District scenery, mixed with the calming sounds of moorland wind, rain and rivers.
This area of Peak District is best known for its high desolate peat moors and barren gritstone edges, offering possibly the only true wilderness experience in this part of England. Beneath the edges of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow, steep-sided cloughs are also home to relict oak-birch woodlands and streams that ascend to the quietude of the plateau.
