From director Graham Cantwell comes this debut feature set mainly in 1970s Ireland. The title character returns from a few years abroad to find his home county of Cavan a changed place. Violence and intimidation from the North has spilled over into the county, angering Anton (Anthony Fox) and Bren (Andy Smith). Deciding to put their angry ranting about ‘the Brits’ into action, the two, rather clumsily, join the local IRA branch. This draws the ire of the local bully-boy, Detective Lynch (Gerard McSorley) as well as further alienating Anton from his wife Maria (Laura Way). Lynch takes a dim view of their antics, brutally hammering home his message to them and Anton’s innocent brother, Edward (Cillian Roche) and the brothers are drawn into a violent downward spiral.
