My Grandma was eleven when a boat taking her to Canada was torpedoed by a German Submarine. Now, 72 years later my Grandma agrees to talk about it one last time.

Living on her own 600 miles away I’ve grown up not knowing my Grandma very well, with a recent string of heart attacks I aim to re-connect with her through the telling of her story.

This film takes you on a journey of what it was like to leave your parents so young, escape a sinking ship in the Atlantic ocean, and once again experience British mince & potatoes.
