Martin Ward is a fisherman from the British county of Cornwall, but who, unfortunately, has no boat. His brother Steven, taking advantage of the fashion of the new tourist stays, has converted the ship that both had by his father in a leisure boat for tourists visiting the area. This will not sit well with Martin, who will begin to have a dispute with his brother. 'Bait' is an experimental film, which has been shot entirely with a 16 mm Kodak camera from 1976. The film is written and directed by Mark Jenkin, who has also been in charge of the work of the cinematographer. The cast is formed by Giles King (Steven Ward), Edward Rowe (Martin Ward), Simon Shepherd (Tim) and Mary Woodvine (Sandra).
