A surrealist drama set on Jersey, an island shaped by the sea, it's the perfect place to indulge in complete anonymity. 1994, Ernest is a lone wolf living at one end of Gorey Row, a long, picturesque line of houses along the stone embankment under Gorey Castle. Jersey is Ernest's sanctuary. He is known in the community for his alluring face and brash reputation. Ernest presents well, but on closer inspection, his shirts and suits are worn and threadbare. No one knows anything about him, and that distance, as Ernest sees it, makes people easier to leave behind… His life is turned upside down when his abandoned daughter Chloe turns up at his favourite drinking hole, twenty years after he dissapered, claiming her mother is dead. Chloe's innocence fades to reveal a cynical motivation for her arrival in Jersey. Ernest must navigate the foreign responsibility of parenthood while Chloe exploits his inner demons.
