By Bucket Club
Directed by Nel Crouch

With Adam Farrell, Luke Murphy, and Helen Vinten

Vanessa's life is science. Fact based, evidence led, no nonsense, no monsters. But when a photograph surfaces showing something in Loch Ness, she must embark on a very personal research project. The multi award-winning company Bucket Club create a "magical, melancholy world" (The List) featuring an extinct fish, a missing father, and breath-taking live electronic sound.
