Our third and latest feature film, written / directed / produced by Tim Barrow, RIPTIDE is a Scottish schizophrenia love story road movie.

Jacob is discharged from a psychiatric hospital. He attempts to resume his life in Edinburgh, control his schizophrenia and be a worthy member of society. He works collecting litter from the streets. He boxes. He takes his medication. He writes everything down. His Dad barely wants to know him.

Frustrated by this banal existence and encouraged by his psychiatrist to seek fulfilling opportunities, Jacob sets off north to the Highlands. By the sea he finds the charismatic Eva, who claims to be the secret daughter of Ingmar Bergman. And she’s on a mission.


“You can’t take your eyes away from the film,
and you just need to know how things will play out.
Five stars all the way”
The Edinburgh Reporter
