Set against the backdrop of Southern England's serene waterways, a group of forty-somethings gather for a sunny weekend reunion on a narrowboat steered by canal boat novice Jon (Jon Foster). Loaded with booze, the gang - Jon, Red (Robyn Isaac), Zooby (Jamie Zubairi) and Simon (Simon Meacock) - swiftly revert to their playful youth; Jon likes to entertain and Red, whether she likes it or not, can't help being a drama queen.

The four unwind, taking in the lush surroundings and sharing banter like the old days. But what soon becomes apparent is that something unspoken is bubbling beneath the surface.

Subtle, honest and packed with humour, Tupaq Felber's arresting debut premiered at London Film Festival in 2017. Shot in black and white in real time over a few days and loosely scripted in a collaborative effort with the cast, Felber's unique, naturalistic approach brings a refreshing edge to British film and creates a visually striking and truthful observation on friendship.
