Storyline

Skagerrak is the story of being hit by happiness when you least expect it. In their late twenties and tired of partying their way around the world, Danish Marie and Irish Sophie come ashore in Northern Scotland. After another drunken night they are soon parted from all their accumulated cash. Out of money and out of luck ambitious Sophie pressures Marie into accepting a lucrative job as surrogate mother. Months on, Marie finds herself alone, life having taken a dramatic turn. Heavily pregnant, and wanting to terminate her pregnancy, she's on the run from the future parents, searching for Sophie's old flame, Ken. In a case of mistaken identity, Marie ends up in hiding with three strange men in a seedy Glasgow garage. But then happiness strikes again. Written by Anonymous

an interesting film, worth a look
20 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I didnt expect much but was pleasantly surprised by this offering. An unusual film but keeps you interested right up to the end which has a most unexpected twist. Always good to see Helen Baxendale, however, she really isn't in the film that much........
