Synopsis

On a boating holiday, a honeymoon couple employ a local to help them navigate the West Midland canals. Dick and Harry Bridges are newly married and Dick has organised their honeymoon getaway as a do-it-yourself cruise on a West Midland backwater canal.

Harry, a girl of means, is crestfallen at the cheapness of Dick's honeymoon plans but soon starts to like the carefree world of canal life when Dick employs Tom, a local pikey, to help steer them through the gates and locks.

Meanwhile, Dick has employed Sunshine an incompetent hit-man to kill his wife so he can collect on her life insurance, but the presence of Tom complicates Sunshine's attempts to do away with her.

As the days stretch and the boat winds its way through the backwaters of Wolverhampton and Birmingham, Sunshine's attempts and Dick's frustration at his failure, make Tom and Harry suspect that something untoward is going on. A British comedy in the Ealing style, Fingers in the Water is set in the post-industrial landscape of the West Midlands on a boat that's going nowhere.
