To The Boats (2018) - short film


To The Boats (2018)

To The Boats is a politically-charged short film set in a fictional version of near-future Britain - months after Brexit. Discovering how the leave campaign effected the UK and its citizens, we follow Ben and Jonny as they battle through a dystopian countryside, traveling across baron landscapes and fighting through deep woodland trenches. All with one goal in mind - to get to the coast an leave the island. 

Not all is as it seems with these two best friends. Despite a clear strong friendship and a lot of perseverance on both of their part, it's tough to say exactly what they've been through to get to this point. Countless days of travel and a stricken, war-torn setting has led to this brave duo fighting for their life. Most people have left the country, leaving one large fearful question in the air: will they get to the boats in time?

To The Boats is a joint production between Three Wheel Entertainment and Sausage Dog Films.
