Inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet, set in the old city of Valletta, Malta; this is a short film that explores dark, liquefied decrepitude. A sailor's son is damned to row a rotting boat back and forth across a hemmed harbour. Numbed by ineptitude yet spurred by guilt and expectations, tormented by the enseamed union between overbearing mother and weaselly uncle, the boy spirals down a foredoomed path.
