Ireland

Synopsis

The antagonist of a strange opera becomes increasingly unsettled, following the unlikely return of the former lead actor.

Director's Statement

In making this film our intention was to explore the intimate breakdown of a relationship between three characters in an overtly fantastical manner. As the opera progresses, the absurd events on stage become less and less abstract.
