It’s the west coast of Ireland in the 19th century, in the early years of what became known as the Great Hunger.


Fisherman Colman lives modestly on rented land with a wife and child as well as his trustworthy brother Seán.


The looming spectre of the catastrophic potato blight is an already established threat when former soldier Pasty, a mysterious and unpredictable companion, arrives on the scene leading to catastrophe for the family.


“Instinctively the viewer shivers as Colman confronts his fate – rarely has a film felt this chilled to the bone.” – Screen Daily.


Director is Tomás Ó Súilleabháin, Ireland, 2019, 86 mins.


Venue is the Source Arts Centre, Thurles, on Wednesday, February 9 at 8pm. Tickets €9/5.
