Set in a quiet English town, our film is an adventure comedy that tells the story of Tricky and Kenny, two reckless best friends, who decide to rob their local fish and chips shop.


Based on an original screenplay by Georgie Freeman, Go Fish is a story about two best friends making bad decisions, a grandma with a cool car and a robbery gone wrong.

Kenny, who has just broken up with his girlfriend and moved back in with his grandma, is visited by his best friend Tricky, a film fanatic, who suggests a plan to bring excitement into their quiet lives. 

Our protagonists, Tricky and Kenny, motivate each other to live an adventure like their favorite movie characters and to be brave (and stupid) together.

Inspirations to our story's best friends are the successful BBC 3 series Young Offenders, the friends of Wes Anderson’s crime-comedy Bottle Rocket and the zombie-fighting duo of Shaun of the Dead. 


Our aim is to create an entertaining short, with relatable characters, focusing on the themes of coming of age and friendship.
