Lent Week 2
An Irish rural hedge school is shaken up by the emergence into the sleepy community of two Irish soldiers who have come to remake the map of Ireland. Their task; to anglicise the place names, has far reaching personal and cultural effects for the small group involved. The focus on turbulent Anglo-Irish relations remains disturbingly relevant as ever today as in the 1830s. The poignant exploration of cross cultural love, transcending the language barriers, and the themes of loss and identity is perpetually met with the darker undercurrent of the potential for violence.
