Synopsis: Set in 1980 to 1993, this is the true story of what happened when the might of officialdom was challenged by the local school master, the accountant, the salesman, the solicitor, the bookmaker and the chiropodist – collectively known as The Sons Of Neptune.

Based in Scarborough, these intrepid fellows who enjoyed bathing in the North Sea all year round, decided to take a stand against the dumping of raw, untreated sewage and effluence in our seas by Yorkshire Water. Taking on the local council and eventually Maggie Thatcher’s Tories, they persevered and convinced the European Parliament to put pressure on the UK government to stop polluting our seas through innovative and effective use of the world media, winning a historical landmark case.
