FAINTHEART is the result of MyMovieMashUp, the ground-breaking initiative by MySpace, Vertigo Films and Film4. MyMovieMashUp sought to harness the collective creativity of the world's largest online community in making the world's first fully user generated feature film.
Richard is a Viking, a weekend warrior, a dreamer. Tired of Richard's all-consuming obsession with his Iron-age alter ego, Cath kicks him out of their home and into the real world. His honour is put in further peril when Cath begins seeing Martin's PE teacher Gary (played by Eastenders' Paul Nicholls). Realising he must finally face up to the challenges of the present day and fatherly responsibility, Richard enlists the help of best friend and 'Trekkie', Julian (Ewen Bremner). Together with Julian and a merry band of assorted geeks known as the 'Bloody Broadswords', Richard must summon all of his Norse courage to discover the real warrior within and prepare for his greatest ever battle.
