Flotsam is the story of two half sisters, forced together on a disastrous hill walk to scatter their Father’s ashes. A film exploring sisterhood between two women who share blood but not a family, and a name but not a history. Having grown up in different cities, families and classes, this walk will be their first time really alone with each other as adults, to say goodbye to the only thing they seem to have in common; their Dad.
Not a romantic vision of sisterly love but rather an honest, darkly funny and intimate portrait of human failings and feelings set against the jagged, dramatic mountains of the west coast of Scotland.
Flotsam was funded by the IdeasTap ‘Ideas Fund Shorts’ initiative.
