About the film:
World Premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
In a windswept fishing village, a mother is torn between protecting her beloved son and her own sense of right and wrong. A lie she tells for him rips apart their family and close-knit community in this tense, sweepingly emotional epic.
“a timeless, elemental drama… this is old Ireland meets the new as its women wrestle against the cosy patriarchy – and their own consciences”
—Fionnuala Halligan for Screen Daily
