A Day at the Beach

Bernie (Mark Burns) is an alcoholic escapist who tries the patience of everybody around him with the exception of his niece Winnie (Beatie Edney). Desperate to escape his debts and drink himself into oblivion, Bernie arrives to take his niece on a trip to the beach. But will her childish innocence and vulnerability awaken Bernie's instinct to survive, or will he surrender to his desire for his self destruction? Considered for many years to be Roman Polanski's 'lost' film. Due to the murder of Sharon Tate by the Manson Family, Polanski handed over the film's direction to Simon Hesera. However, the completed film was then shelved by the distributors for fear of being seen to 'cash in' on Polanski's grief.
