Short film Marieville reunites director Grant Lahood with actor Peter Tait, who has appeared in several Lahood films — including award-winning 1993 short The Singing Trophy. Tait plays Cyril, an elderly man who has drifted into a fantasy world centred around a model of an American paddle steamer. When his daughter Karen (Amelia Reynolds) sees a painting in a gallery, she recalls memories of her dad. The boat takes a journey of its own until it is rediscovered by an artist (played by real life artist Michael Hight, who created the painting used in the film).
