Barging Free

"Barging Free's honesty, charm, heartbreak, and humor swept me up and carried me away." 
Todd Klick, filmmaker, Los Angeles

To escape the financial stress of living in London Alan, at the ripe age of sixty nine, buys a second-hand narrowboat in the West Midlands. With no experience of living on a boat, he and his wife asphyxiate themselves with toxic fumes on day one, lose their key and have to break into their boat on day two, and on day three nearly burn the boat down. Determined to own their own home and return to London where they can moor for free if they move every two weeks, they keep going but things only get worse. Should they carry on or throw in the towel and return to London?

Barging Free is a tale of facing your fear, following your dream and trusting in life - even when there’s ice on the inside of the window and water under your bed!
