The debut feature of Joe Comerford is based on a script by Neil Jordan and casts two young Travellers, Judy Donovan and Davey Spillane, in the role of a newly-wed couple forced to head north of the border on a smuggling mission.On the way they meet IRA man Clicky, whose story becomes interwoven with their own. This formally complex drama of made-marriages, stolen goods, incest, republicanism and patricide provides a sympathetic exploration of this much-scapegoated community.
