Falling in love changes everything. Trapped in a run down farmhouse at the edge of the world with a father who has opted out of life, James spends his summer holidays on the beach with a crab he has named Bernard. When newly arrived city kid Stacey appears and seems to like him as much as he likes her, it almost seems too good to be true. Can she help him to leave behind the ghosts of his past or will she abandon him like others have done before?
Anywhere But Here, a UK/Irish co-production, is a family drama by director John Hayes, starring Shresta Canyhee, Conor Delaney, and Scott Graham.
