As the windows rattle and winds howl, Grandad waits out the storm with his grandchild. A spur of the moment babysitting job turns into a tale of adventure, piracy and family, as Grandad shares the secrets of his life. Out of the gloom of Grandad’s home, cluttered with motorbike parts and makeshift furniture, his story appears before your eyes as if by magic. Grandad’s adventures twist and turn as pieces of theatrical mystery bring even the most far away places right to the door.

Directed by Murray Lynch and Starring Jason Whyte.
