They say there are only two stories worth telling: a person goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town.
This film is about a stranger who comes to make a film in the small town of Gort in the West of Ireland, and the people she meets when she holds auditions. Together, they go on a cinematic journey to explore their walking and dreaming lives. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.
Treasa O’Brien works in long and short-form documentary both in Ireland and internationally, looking at migration, human rights and community and how these things interact. Her 2015 feature documentary Eat Your Children focused on activism in Ireland.
