The Folan women live out an uneasy truce in a cottage in County Galway.
In a small house on a big hill in County Galway, the Folan women live out an uneasy truce. Forty-year-old Maureen and her elderly but iron-willed mother Mag spend their days in endless rounds of insults and physical threats as each manoeuvres for control of their isolated existence.
However, when an old family friend reappears and offers Maureen a chance at love and a new life, this once-benign terrain grows treacherous and the two women, bound by blood but driven by desperation, will do anything to survive.
This event is part of the Home of St Patrick Festival.
