In the not so distant future, the economy is failing, food is scarce and paranoia is in the air. Samuel and Judith Covey live in rural England, maintaining their government-controlled farm – in constant fear of losing it all. After an anonymous tip, William Bloor, a “Foxfinder,” arrives to investigate a suspected contamination, threatening to uncover secrets of desire and regret that will change all of their lives forever.
Comments Director Margaret Knapp, “Although it flirts with thematic elements like the examination of a police state in today’s society, the effects of global warming, and religious zealotism, at its core Foxfinder is about the battle against the forces of nature, both external and internal, and how when these forces threaten to overwhelm us, we look for someone, or something, to blame.”
