In the shadow of Parliament, one nuclear family struggles to butcher its way through the economic recession...
Based partly on two real-life events that happened in Europe, this is a darkly comic film. The butcher leaves his young son to look after the shop so he can go upstairs for a little nooky with his wife. Things explode into a bloody mess what with rent due and other daily tensions reaching fever pitch…
Stuart McKenzie directs his wife, Miranda Harcourt, a pairing they would later revisit for their first feature, For Good.
