Aoife Ní Bhraoin returns home to help her father Brendan ‘The Bear’ Ó Briain as he recovers from a heart attack. Day to day they get along fine, but there is so much that has been left unsaid about the loss of her mother. Over the summer she gets pulled back into the competitive world of rowing. She lets herself become close to the three women in her crew, but as the big race approaches Aoife feels an unbearable strain, years of suppressed grief and sadness, that could seriously wreck their chances of success.
