    • Synopsis
    • THE GOOB combines the dirty roar of stock car thunder with the visceral vision of a teenage boy’s first love. We’re in the middle of a heatwave in Fenland, England. Goob Taylor has spent each of his sixteen summers helping his Mum run the transport cafe and harvest the surrounding pumpkin fields. When his Mum shacks up with swarthy stock-car driving supremo and ladies’ man Gene Womack, Goob becomes an unwelcome side thought. However Goob’s world turns when exotic pumpkin picker Eva arrives. Fuelled by her flirtatious comments, Goob dreams of better things.
