Lily & the Albatross is about a small family of three, the legend of Great Captain Markham and how they learn to fly in the face of a storm.

A heartfelt story about achieving the unachievable and never letting go of your childhood dreams.

Far out in the wild and remote ocean is a small family on an old fishing boat who pass the time with exciting stories and merry music.

The whims of the water control their daily routine but Lily finds herself gazing upwards, where birds swim weightlessly above her head before stealing the precious fish from the fishing nets.

With the threat of the nightly storm and its whipping winds, the family must pull together, take a leap of faith and look beyond what they have always known to get themselves and their old boat moving again.

Discover the legend of Great Captain Markham, join the family as they battle the elements and meet a gliding albatross, who flies in the face of the storm and gives Lily the nudge she needs to truly stretch her wings.

A tale of wild weather, wild birds and wild ambitions.
