Martin (Rowe) is a fisherman without a boat since his brother repurposed their father’s vessel for tourist trips. As he struggles to buy his own boat he must also cope with family rivalry and the influx of London money, stag parties and holiday homes in his picturesque Cornish harbour village. Summer brings simmering tensions to a head, with tragic consequences. Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Bait is timely and poignant, yet full of humour.

Also available on BFI Player.
