Event Description

Film following the disintegration of a small fishing community on the West Coast of Ireland as they try to deal with a proposed Shell pipeline which could bring economic prosperity or destroy a way of life shared for generations. When the Irish government put the resources of the state at the behest of the oil companies, the local people are left to depend on their own limited resources to take on this massive challenge of a project which they perceive to be a massive threat to their health, safety and environment.
