An ordinary British family are accused of murder when a stranger dies at their dinner table.
Out walking his dog, Tom Thompson meets a disheveled man called Blake and invites him over for tea. Blake dies in the company of the dysfunctional Thompson family, who decide, with Tim - a friend of the Thompson daughters - to honour Blake’s final request by burying him in the woods by Black Pond.
Six months later,Tim visits off-the-wall freelance therapist Dr Eric Sacks and the story of Blake and the Thompsons finds its way to the press. The facts are bent and the details spun as the Thompsons become known to the public as ‘The Family of Killers’.
Black Pond is an account of the events leading up to Blake’s death, intercut with scenes from the fateful therapy session between Tim and Sacks and talking head interviews in which the Thompsons try to justify their actions and clear the family name.
Sorry. We have no upcoming listings for Black Pond.
