Logline

SHOAL

Rugged coastlines, a rough sea, and on it a fishing boat on which all is not right. Eliza and her father live in a remote coastal town. She works in a fish factory. He is a fisherman on the aforementioned boat, which returns one day with one fewer crew member. Village gossip blames Eliza’s father for the death of his shipmate. He and his daughter, too, are attacked; the house is pelted with fish scraps, and bicycle tires are punctured. Even Eliza begins to doubt her father’s story and wants to find out what really happened.
