    • Synopsis
    • Eight year old Leo’s best friend is an 8m shark which his dad Peter, an artist, put on the roof of their house. Leo misses his mum and Peter misses his wife but their new Polish au pair Anya (28) isn’t either of those things – she’s a whole different kettle of fish. Leo’s unique perspectives bring humour, imagination, and an innocent charm to this off-beat comedy drama.
