Micky Mason, is a skilled manual worker who, since the financial crash, can find nothing but menial zero hours jobs. To survive he takes a course of action that is completely out of character, but it’s the only way he can see of keeping his family together.

Sink is about surviving, but it’s not all anguish and despair – it’s also warm and tender. It’s about people finding their way through. Shot mainly in South East London, Sink is written and directed by Mark Gillis.
