Synopsis


"I'm untameable. Like the wind. Or Heathcliff.


Or Bruce Springsteen during his Nebraska period.


As long as all these houses are empty I'll be a freewheeling holiday home breaking hobo, The Beast Of Booby's Bay".


Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is holed up in an empty second home.


The holiday season is fast approaching, the sharks are coming, but he refuses to budge.


As Booby's Bay fills up for the annual surfing competition, Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one is listening.


He's got media connections and intends to make a political stand.


A passionate, comic fable about the housing crisis in Cornwall and beyond, and a maverick's mission to turn the tide.
