In this Film Ireland podcast director Phil Sheerin and writer David Turpin chat to Gemma Creagh ahead of the premiere of their atmospheric drama The Winter Lake at the Galway Film Fleadh.

With nowhere else to go, Tom (Anson Boon) and his mother, Elaine (Charlie Murphy), return to her childhood home in Ireland. While exploring, Tom makes a disturbing discovery in the nearby seasonal lake that forces him into a troubling personal dilemma.

After meeting the father (Michael McElhatton) and daughter (Emma Mackey), from the neighbouring farm, their complex web of secrets and lies are revealed to pull Tom and Elaine into a violent confrontation with the darkest parts of human nature.

The Winter Lake screens at the Galway Film Fleadh from Friday, 10th July at 9:00pm.
