FROM THE CUTTING ROOM FLOOR OF BARNEY KETTLE
11 year old Ren likes things ship-shape – but that’s not easy to manage when you’re trying to produce a movie about your crazy neighbourhood – the High Street in the centre of town; and when your director is a megalomaniac - and also your 12 year old brother, Barney. When someone starts stealing from all the friends and neighbours starring in their film, Ren and Barney set out to solve the mystery, under the cover of filming. As they’re drawn deep into a cat-and-mouse game with the charismatic thieves, Ren must face a bundle of chaos, her own fears and a force of nature that changes everything.
