The Toll is a ‘West Walian Western’ set entirely in Pembrokeshire – a place English people come to die.
A single toll booth on a road in the middle of nowhere. A lone wolf HOWLS in the distance. Actually, it’s probably a stray dog, but you get the picture.
BRENDAN works solo shifts in the quietest toll booth in Wales, hiding from a criminal past where nobody would ever look. When he finally gets rumbled, word of his whereabouts gets out and his enemies head west for revenge. Meanwhile, local traffic cop CATRIN’s investigation into a simple robbery finds her heading for the booth at exactly the wrong time.
