Crowdfunding Projects We Dig

Eddie & Frankie


In an ex-mining community, a young girl’s attempts to get her Dad’s attention are thwarted when he loses his job.

A young girl’s attempts to get her Dad’s attention are thwarted when he loses his job. Like most girls, Frankie loves her Dad. She wants to be like him, she wants to impress him. She’s 13 and looking for a role model, but Eddie’s in crisis himself! He’s just been made redundant and his world has been turned upside down.

In order for Frankie to discover her identity she has to help Eddie rediscover his sense of self. Absorbed in job centre applications, Eddie doesn’t have time for his daughter’s help. Rebuked and angry, Frankie lashes out making him realise what’s at stake, Eddie remembers his role as a dad and they find solace in each other.
