Written and directed by Paul Wright, For Those In Peril centres on Aaron (MacKay), the lone survivor of a freak fishing accident, who struggles to come to terms with the loss of his brother at the hands of “the devil in the ocean”.

The film, which is competing for the prestigious Michael Powell Award at the 67th Edinburgh International Film Festival on Friday (read our review here), stars George MacKay (Peter Pan), Kate Dickie (Red Road), Michael Smiley (Kill List), Nichola Burley (Wuthering Heights) and Jordan Young (Driving Lessons).

Backed by Warp X, BFI Film Fund, Film4, Creative Scotland and Screen Yorkshire, For Those In Peril was sold to Soda Pictures through sales agent Protagonist Pictures and will open in UK cinemas later this year.
