Film description

Richard, an alpha male psychopath, beats his best friend Jonah to a pulp because he thinks he’s slept with his girlfriend, Sasha. When Jonah and Sasha convince him his allegations are unfounded, Richard invites them out for a day trip on his family’s yacht to make amends. Once out to sea the accusations, recriminations (and spearguns) start to fly as they find themselves stranded without fuel, radio contact, food or water. A modern reimagining of an Edgar Allan Poe story, Harpoon is a wickedly humorous and bloody deconstruction of friendship and love.
