Starring Jason Flemyng, best known for his roles in ‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, the two-minute film tells the story of a lonely nine-year-old who tries to find friends by throwing a message in a plastic bottle into the sea in Brighton.

But when a council litter picker, played by Flemyng, sees what the young boy’s up to he teaches him a brutal lesson in marine ecology and the importance of not throwing single-use plastic in our oceans.

The film was written, directed and produced by Tony Burke through Dead Bird Film and shot on Location in Brighton and represents an acting debut for 10-year-old Ronnie Wrenn from Hove.
