Watch our mini-documentary on how an Abergavenny couple were stranded in rural Panama during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the steps they took to return home below.
The documentary was produced under lockdown by local filmmaker and writer Honey McKenna.
Local ecologist Lee Jenkins, along with his girlfriend Elen Williams, a trainee ecologist, were stranded on the island of Bastimentos in Northwest Panama in March 2020. What was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime quickly became much more complex than anticipated, as the local Panamanian governments enforced restrictions on movement and travel.
