For Those In Peril, released on DVD by Soda Pictures on 3rd March 2014, tells the story of Aaron, a young misft in a remote Scottish community, who is the lone survivor of a strange fshing accident that claimed the lives of five men, including his older brother. Spurred on by sea-going folklore and local superstition, the village blames him for this tragedy, making him an outcast amongst his own people.
