Liverpool Ferry

A film by Lee Armstrong 

Winner of the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competition, and starring Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Derry Girls).

Sarah must make a journey from Belfast to Liverpool to avoid a life she does not want. A journey that is against the law. Under cover of darkness and without the knowledge of her parents, 17 year-old Sarah and boyfriend Jules set off to catch the Liverpool Ferry. The young lovers spark with sharp banter and hot tempers, masking feelings too overwhelming and too deep to share. At their destination they must confront the reality of a choice that will change them both.
