Martin Ward is a cove fisherman, without a boat. His brother has re-purposed their father’s vessel as a tourist tripper, driving a wedge between them. With their childhood home now a get-away for London money, Martin is displaced to the estate above the picturesque harbour. As the summer season settles in, tensions reach new levels with tragic consequences. Shot in black and white 16mm, Bait is a poignant slice of realism, balancing modern ideas and tradition.

"A genuine modern masterpiece"
