A rural community carve out their lives while a motorway ploughs through their landscape. It goes no further than the town of Gort in the West of Ireland, halted by the dawn of a financial crisis. In this poetic documentary a myriad of personalities weave an epic tapestry through the bog lands, farms, firesides, race tracks and hurling pitches of recession Ireland. ‘We might all need to be remembered someday’ says a storyteller, defining the importance of folk tales living on in collective memory. The film also attests to the impermanence of our existence: nature will reclaim all evidence of our civilisations. A poetic, lyrical and moving portrait.
