The Screen Guide

Georgie Jutland is restless. Living with her cray fisherman boyfriend, a local hero in their coastal village, and trying her best to be a stepmother to his young sons, she finds herself out of place. She catches outsider Lu Fox poaching from her partner’s territory and the two are powerfully drawn to one another. But Lu is haunted by a tragic accident from his past, which had irrevocable consequences. In order to take control he feels he must separate from everyone, even Georgie, journeying to the remotest island. This is a film about the odds of breaking with the past, a love story about people stifled by grief or regret, whose dreams are lost and whose hopes have dried up. It's a story about the possibility and power of love.
