Above a secluded cove in Cornwall, Huck, a former fisherman, is squatting in an empty second home. The holiday season is fast approaching, but he refuses to budge. As Booby’s Bay fills up for the annual surfing competition, Huck wants to shake things up, even if no one is listening. He's got media connections and intends to make a political stand.

Inspired by the housing crisis and the reality of life on the North Cornish coast, Booby’s Bay is a passionate, comic fable about the lengths one man will man go to have his voice heard.
