29th Galway Film Fleadh 11th – 16th July 2017
“Starfish is the story of a family, and most of all a marriage – offering a relatable hook to events that are very far from the experiences of most audience members.”
— Screen Daily
Starfish is the true and incredibly moving story of Tom and Nicola Ray, whose love is tested to the limit when their perfect life falls apart. When Tom puts his small daughter to bed one chilly December evening, he has everything he could ever want – a dream house, the life of a writer, a beautiful wife and a second baby on the way. The next morning all of this is in jeopardy as Tom succumbs to the devastating illness that is sepsis.
As Tom and Nicola battle to hold their family and marriage together, the strength of their relationship is the only thing that can save them.
