Award-winning film, “A Hand Full of Dirt,” screens in London on September 7
Archie Redman is a middle-aged man chasing a fading dream. In his obsession to hold onto his failing business — a small hotel — he has sacrificed everything. His marriage is broken, his debts have risen beyond his reach and he has a severely damaged relationship with his father.
Thousands of miles away, Archie’s son Jay faces worries of his own. Recently graduated from university, Jay is stuck in limbo, penniless in a cold, unforgiving city and unable to legally work until Archie pays his school debts.
Suddenly, an opportunity to resolve his problems and secure his future presents itself, but to take it, Jay must commit the ultimate act of betrayal.
