THE ROCKETSHIP

(MA Thesis Film)
Shaun, a quiet, space-obsessed eleven-year-old is building a space-rocket in his back garden assisted by little brother Joey.

Shaun’s mother, Stace, is embroiled in a desperate financial struggle to keep a roof over their heads, and as her mental health deteriorates Shaun increasingly retreats into his engineering project, guided by NASA mission controllers of a bygone era.

The brothers plan their launch for a coming super-moon, but Stace finally snaps, and as the paramedics beak down the front-door, Shaun discovers that some rockets never launch, and the last bulwarks of childhood naivety crumble, along with the spaceship, into a pile of broken dreams, wood and junk.
