Long Way Home, The

Director: Paddy Breathnach

Ray Priest leaves his wife, Maria, after a row at a family wedding. As he drives
into the night he picks up a mysterious young hitchhiker, sometimes menacing
yet a confidante, he allows Ray to explore his relationship with his family. When
the car runs out of petrol they must walk to a nearby garage before being
mistaken for two runaway convicts and held at gunpoint. Ray escapes, leaving
the mysterious hitch-hiker and his nightmare world behind, the journey taking
him back to the hotel and his wife where he begins to rediscover love which,
according to the hitchhiker, is ‘a home, an inside to our lives.’
