A young girl, who after the loss of her beloved grandfather, discovers that when she accidentally feeds her grandfather's ashes to her goldfish "Chips", he speaks to her.

The story idea was selected for the Directors UK, ARRI Alexa Challenge 2019 (theme of "Magic") and the film was self-funded via an Indiegogo campaign.

The creative/production team features a host of top U.K. filmmaking talent, and stars the voice of much loved actor Peter Mullan as the grandfather "Chips".
