About the event

Tom Sullivan’s striking gaelic language debut captures the desperation of the 1840’s potato famine on the spectacular shores of Ireland’s west coast. Fisherman Colmán Sharkey works hard to provide for his family. At the behest of the local priest, he welcomes Patsy, a former soldier with a dark past, into his home. No good deed goes unpunished. As land taxes rise and crops rot, Colmán confronts his Landlord, but the night ends in deadly violence and Colmán is forced into exile, leaving him in search of redemption.

Part of the Official Selection of Leeds International Film Festival.
