Foscadh

Seán Breathnach

Shelter

When his over-cosseting parents pass away reclusive John Cunliffe is suddenly propelled into manhood at the ripe old age of twenty-six. After inheriting mountain land that obstructs a lucrative wind-farm development, John is forced to navigate the choppy waters of courtship, trust and vengeance for the first time. Irish-language feature based on Donal Ryan’s novel The Thing About December.

Lonnaithe i gConamara an lae inniu, insíonn Foscadh scéal John Cunliffe, aonaránach dúramánta a gcuirtear brú gan choinne air teacht in aois fir nuair a chailltear a mhuintir. Agus luach a chuid talún méadaithe go mór toisc é a bheith sa tslí ar fhorbairt fheirm muillte gaoithe, tagann cuairteoirí agus cúirtéirí chomh fada leis don chéad uair. Caithfidh se idirdhealú a dhéanamh eatarthu siúd atá le trust agus an dream atá ag cur súil thar a gcuid.
