Thomas Reid farms cattle alone in north Kildare. Threadbare clothes and tough, weathered hands reveal a life of land and toil. His next-door neighbour is the world’s largest producer of computer microchips, and rumours of expansion abound.
The reclusive, quiet-spoken farmer finds himself facing impending change as his house and lands are subjected to an unprecedented Compulsory Purchase Order, threatening Thomas and his very way of life.
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.
