Director: Nick Kelly

Tackling a bleak but regrettably-common topic in Ireland today, Shoe finds Vince (Peter Coonan) standing on the edge of a bridge already marked by memorial flowers. Trying to gather his commitment, Vince finds his preparations upset by fast-talking tramp Probie (Pat Kinevane), who talks blackly about the best way to kill yourself and what to do before doing so. Despite the darkness of its subject matter Shoe avoids taking too grim a tone; instead focus is trained on good memories and the prospect of more to come that can act as a deterrent from such fatal acts.
