Plot & Details

Two men who don't like one another very much are on the receiving end of a very creative punishment from the mob in this darkly comic short subject from filmmaker William Sinclair. Finn (Dylan Moran) is a low-level gangster who has fallen out of favor with his higher-ups -- so much so that they decide to put him out of the picture once and for all. Finn's feet are encased in a heavy block of cement, and he's dropped on a beach where the tide is slowly but surely coming in. As Finn tries to find a way out and angrily bemoans his fate, he suddenly discovers he has company -- Jack (Gerard McSorley), another minor mob character whose mistakes helped put Finn on the hit list. Jack is also wearing concrete shoes and bickers with Finn about what to do in their current situation and who is really to blame. Tell It To The Fishes was screened as part of the short film series at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.
