Synopsis

Thomas is a 55 year old Irish farmer who lives and works the farm of his ancestors. His neighbour is the world’s largest manufacturer of computer microchips which tries to acquire his land. Thomas refuses to sell his farm but finds his world in turmoil as forces conspire to remove him. What begins as a story of one man’s struggle to hold on to his way of life and land, transforms into a universal exploration of a battle between principle and power.

Because there is something very disquieting about the notion that the State can kind of swoop in and force someone to sell up their own property, so that a factory can be built.
