About

Sunday morning in the suburbs. James and his two friends break into an eccentric old man’s house. They want to find out if the rumours are true. Is he stockpiling dirty magazines? But once inside, things don’t go according to plan. James gets trapped in the house when he realises the old man is home…
Roof Rattling tells the story of the brief connection between a young boy and an old man who couldn’t be more different, or more alike. A chance encounter between the two has a dramatic effect on both of their lives.
