Pádraic and Colm live in a remote Irish island. They have been friends for long and share the slow rhythm of a life that doesn’t offer much relevance. One day, though, Colm decides to end their friendship, giving Pádraic no real reason. Their community is forced to take sides, the break-up becomes a collective matter, and will change the tranquil island life forever.
