Set in 1850, this ambitious period drama is based on an old Tyneside sea-faring tale. A single mother and her daughter survive by luring sailors on shore leave to their boarding house to rob and murder. This film received a special commendation in the annual Amateur Cine World (ACW) magazine Ten Best competition. Scenes were filmed on board a sailing vessel at Dunston on the River Tyne and around the oldest locations in Newcastle upon Tyne, including Sandhill. The film was a Newcastle and District Amateur Cinematographers Association (ACA) production.
