A father and son live a reclusive lifestyle in the middle of nowhere. The man, a disillusioned mercenary, has his final target in sight - a gang of foreign revolutionaries who lay low in a nearby derelict compound. As the man closes in on his target the boy falls for the revolutionaries' serving girl. Having spent his whole life in isolation the boy now discovers the warmth of friendship and the pleasures of something more. As father and son collide the boy is sent running, running in pain and full of betrayal, straight into the twisted embittered arms of the boy's maternal grandparents, who have come to snatch and save the boy. Figuring out what is right and wrong, what is good and bad is a task for both the man and the audience.

Martin Radich - Writer/Director

Martin is a BAFTA-nominated fiction filmmaker and director of photography. Martin is drawn to real life and has worked extensively with non-actors. One example of this is a widely-praised scene in his first feature film 'Crack Willow' where actor Mark Bennett is depicted caring for his elderly father. This role was actually played by Mark's dad, a decision which gave the scene an additional layer of intensity and poignancy. Described by Edinburgh International Film Festival as a "brave vision", they selected it as one of their 'Best of the Fest.' 

Rachel Dargavel - Producer

Rachel recently set up her own Nottingham Based production company, Cry Baby.  A member of The Vipers Nest, Rachel is one of 13 hand-picked, first-time british and irish film makers, all of whom have an extremely impressive body of work in tv, commercials, shorts or music videos.  Rach cut her teeth as a 3rd Assistant Director, moving into Production where she became a highly sort after Line Producer on the low budget British Indie scene.

Finlay Pretsell - Producer

Finlay has been an integral part of the close-knit team at the Scottish Documentary Institute for over 6-years. In that time, he's directed and produced several short documentaries which have screened at prestigious international festivals including Sundance and SXSW. His work has garnered a number of awards, including a BAFTA Scotland for best short film for 'Ma Bar' about veteran weightlifter Bill McFadyen.
