Synopsis

My Dad & Spike tells the poignant story of how sometimes it's the unforeseen changes in life that often matter most.

In a suburban London street, lives 7 year old Ali, his Mum, Dad and fish Spike. All his life, when darkness comes and everyone is asleep, Ali has been comforted by the sound of his Dad's loud snoring next door. But one day the snoring stops.

For Mum and Dad it's a huge relief but for Ali, it sparks a series of fears not only about the darkness of the night but about the health of his fish.
My Dad & Spike is a film about the quiet intricacies of family life.
