SYNOPSIS

Behind the faded grandeur of a seaside resort the vulnerable and poor become prey for local predators.

Whilst working for a petty loan shark, Leighton is unwittingly chaperoned for the day by his older brother Cass, a gentle man with learning difficulties. Tasked with minding Cheryl, a debtor, Leighton leads the trio to a childhood haunt, the aquarium.  
      
In the tranquility of blue, brothers share memories of their late mother and happier times. Doubting his role in Cheryl’s fate and reluctance as enforcer, Leighton seeks a kinder resolution offering to clear the debt. But when the offer is refused, Leighton must bite back.

The Cast

leighton
JOSH CASSWELL

Drawn into a small time criminal circle, Leighton enjoys the distraction that his adoptive family of ne'er do wells brings. But as hard as he tries to belong with the gang, there is an emptiness stirring inside that no amount of drink and drugs will quell. If Leighton is to change, to escape the pull of the sharks, he will have to draw upon a remembrance of things past, a family, love, care and protection. 

CASS
MATTHEW MELLALIEU

The elder brother, Cass has always been the more responsible of the two. Taught well by his mother, Cass continues to keep an eye out for Leighton, often reminding him to look after things, the B&B, Mum's fish and himself. Caring and diligent, if sometimes a little distracted, he is like an anchor to Leighton reminding his brother of who he can be. 

 

Cheryl
CHARLOTTE RHODES

Hidden away in an old static caravan, Cheryl has given in to her addictions. Caught in a cycle of debt with Eric, she resigns herself to his proposal for repayment. Once she would have fought tooth and claw to find a way out but since her child was taken from her, she is empty, a shell. When her unlikely minders take her for the afternoon she finds a sense of belonging, a brief moment of the familiar, of family.

FRANNY
RICHARD CREHAN

He enjoyed being a right hand man, reliable and loyal, he knew his place - but not anymore. Since a disagreement with Eric, not seeing eye to eye with his bosses methods, he has been pushed to the side lines and now another is taking his place. But maybe he can dissuade the newcomer, Leighton and warn him of what Eric will have in store for him.

ERIC
LUKE MCGIBNEY

Small time loan shark, he feeds off those around him, friend and foe alike. Whether for financial, emotional, or physical sustenance, Eric takes what he wants. He is an opportunist and manipulator, pulling others in to do his dirty work for a few extra quid. Eric believes in loyalty, to question or ignore his wishes would lead to a beating or worse, so those who swim in his circle stay close for fear of his bite.
