The story of two sisters who grew up on the fractious Irish border. When one of them, who has been missing, finally returns home, the intense bond with her sister is re-ignited. Together they unearth their mother’s past but uncovered secrets and resentments which have been buried deep, threaten to overwhelm them.
An important and interesting film for everyone who is interested in the past and current state of Northern Ireland. We will undoubtedly see numerous responses to this film in the future from Irish filmmakers.

“a memorial to McGuigan’s intense, electric talent since the young actor succumbed to cancer after production wrapped. The film is rightly dedicated to her.” Hollywood Reporter
“Brady makes her story feel fresh, alive, and specific, simmering with just-out-of-reach-dread, but also adorned by the very particular relationship at the film’s center.” Indie wire
“reunion and separation — of both the geographical and generational sort” Variety
