Director: Keith Walsh | Producer: Jill Beardsworth

A film about rural life in the midst of great local, national and global change ***** 5 Stars RTE.ie

A new motorway ploughs through a community in the west of Ireland, a glaring symbol of our modern age. Over a period of 7 years, the film weaves an epic tapestry of reflections from bog-lands, fire-sides, race tracks and hurling pitches; all while the country is hit by the worst economic crisis it has ever faced and the realisation that we are living unsustainably slowly dawns....all to the soundtrack of the words of the area's former native W.B. Yeats. This award winning film exists somewhere between classic ethnography, abstract poetry and a clarion call for the age we live in.
