Directorial debut, SINK, follows Micky Mason (Martin Herdman), whose father is slowly losing himself to dementia, whose son is desperately trying to stay clean, and he is just trying to keep things together. He thinks everyone will be fine, but he’s drowning. It’s not one big thing that sends him over, it’s the constant drip. With nothing but menial zero-hour contracts to keep them afloat Micky takes a course of action that is completely out of character, but it’s the only way he can see of keeping his family together.

It's a film about people finding their way through - about surviving. But it’s not all anguish and despair, sometimes it’s warm and tender. And you might even laugh.
