This Irish language short looks to traditional Spanish culture as it tells a winning story of a boy finding solace in an unexpected place. Unable to connect with father (Peadar Cox), lonely schoolboy Cian (Domhnall Ó Braonáin) discovers comfort in a televised matador who speaks directly from the television to Cian. Teaching him self-confidence through learning the ways of the matador, Cian comes to fight for himself and chooses to test himself against his father’s prize bull.
