The son of a single mum who wants nothing to do with him, 13-year-old David lives at a children’s home in Ireland. Despite the best intentions of the couple managing the home, Sarah (Ford) and Gerry (Coyle), life is tough.
David’s life is dramatically changed when nine-year-old Danielle, another unwanted child, arrives. Bullied by the other children, they form a bond, sharing dreams of escape.
Their situation becomes intolerable after an incident, and David is threatened with a transfer to another home. When the opportunity to flee comes, they run away to the seaside. But will tragedy continue to follow the children?
Fans of poignant coming-of-age films such as My Life as a Courgette and Moonrise Kingdom will be moved by Soft Sand, Blue Sea’s story of lost children, friendship and dreams of belonging.
