Water’s Edge

Water's Edge


A multi-award winning short film set in a timeless English landscape, at the centre of which is a small church and a village pond. At the bottom of the pond a World War II pilot lies at peace. This is Lucy’s secret until Sarah discovers it and reveals all to the local vicar. David and best friend Spud, young boys on the edge of adolescence, see their close friendship challenged by their association with this mysterious girl – in a rites of passage tale that, for Lucy, marks the end to childhood and innocence.
