Ireland 1845 on the eve of the great famine. Colman Sharkey, a fisherman, father and husband, takes in a stranger at the behest of a local priest. As famine progresses, unable to protect his family, he is subsumed by darkness until a helpless little girl saves him from despair.

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

“This well acted and beautifully scored film is born of the land itself; an austere and implacable drama about finding hope when all else is lost.”
– LittleWhiteLies
