Extra money will go towards entering The Nestlings into Film Festivals across the world. Entering festivals can be very expensive and the more festivals it enters, the further the messages of the film will carry.

‘The Nestlings’ explores the relationship of siblings, Sam and Lucy, born 8 years apart who are home alone on a night shortly before the eldest departs for University. Sam has to deal with the paranoia of their parents potentially not coming home after a tragic event takes place near where they went for their anniversary meal that night. All whilst calmly explaining the situation to Lucy, who is old enough to understand the horrors of the world.

This film explores the themes of terrorism, sibling relationships, family and how children perceive the world
