    • Synopsis
    • On Arriving in the U.K traveling companions Sam and Dan have heavy hearts, not to mention damp clothes and bad attitudes. After yet another cold night sleeping on the streets the two friends decide to head into the country for a friendlier slice of life. During a chance meeting and a violent altercation in the local nightclub Sam and Dan find themselves the sole guests aboard the narrow boat of a mysterious recluse named Justin. As they meander down the local waterways hedonism ensues as the mental state of both the young men and their patience with each other starts to deteriorate. Soon they begin to understand they may not be alone on the river. Strange whispers are heard in the dark and tales of the immigrant workers that perished to create the river system begins to haunt Sam. When things seem to be at there worst suddenly Justin picks up another passenger, a girl and she is injured. Only one option remains to the men, to take the boat evermore downriver and return the girl to a hostile gypsy campsite. With the inky darkness of the ages creeping its way through the water Sam and Dan must confront what lies at the end of the river in all it’s timeless rage… and live to tale the tale.
