The Poet,The Shopkeeper and Babu

The Poet,The Shopkeeper and Babu

This is the story of Cathal Ó Searcaigh, the Irish gay poet, who spends part of every year in Nepal where he has 'adopted' a family and their country. Neasa NÍ Chianáin's film follows Ó Searcaigh to his adopted home and contrasts his world in Donegal with his experiences in Nepal. It also explores the internal dilemmas he encounters as a gay, liberal, Western poet, who has fallen in love with a country and its people.
