Pond Life is a perfectly formed coming of age tale set in a quiet mining village outside Doncaster in the mid 90s with breakout performances from a talented cast of young actors.

First time director Bill Buckhurst imbues his tale with considerable warmth and charm. A group of young friends and neighbours come together for a fishing expedition after rumours spread of a giant carp in the area.

In a world of broken families, cassette tapes and rumbling political fever, these friends, each with their own struggles to bear, share a moment of harmony.
