Cromer crab fisher Brendan is losing business. His eldest daughter Marina has lost her way. His youngest daughter Shanty has lost her voice. But Shanty knows how they can find money, meaning and her voice: by starting a family band.

Shanty is an LGBTQ+ themed comedy drama about community, creativity and what it might mean to be from the east of England.
