In Bait, a brilliantly original and visually daring independent first feature from writer/director Mark Jenkin, gruff and taciturn Martin Ward (Edward Rowe) is a cove fisherman in Cornwall, but without a boat. His brother Steven (Giles King) repurposed their father’s vessel for tourist trips and they fell out. As Martin struggles to put away a bit of cash every day to buy his own boat, the family rivalry takes its toll, not to mention the influx of London money, stag parties and holiday homes that are displacing the locals in his picturesque Cornish harbour village. As the summer season brings in teenage holidaymakers and AirBnBers, the simmering tensions come to a head.
