Finn attempts to reconstruct his fragmented relationship with his father, Walter, through a fishing trip at the seaside. Work has engulfed Finn's life over the past year resulting in a deterioration of his family relations. Walter's wife has recently died of cancer and he has turned to isolation as a means of dealing with his grief. Finn seeks Walter's advice as to how he can salvage his marriage but Walter is unwilling to assist Finn in his troubles. As a storm approaches and the boat's engine refuses to start, Walter and Finn find themselves stranded out on the ocean. The pair realise that they must work together in order to overcome their personal issues and to survive the storm.

This is a 10 min short film that I completed as part of my 1st year Creative Arts degree at Latrobe, Bundoora.
