  • Synopsis

    Gethin is 23, just finished a film course and reckons he’s the next Scorsese. His Mum is on at him to do her friend’s wedding video – before they get divorced! But Gethin is interested in a much more daring project – one that will test his friendships, piss off his sister, question his idealism and turn his life and that of his family upside down.

    An examination of paranoia, ambiguity and innocence in our highly sexualized world.
