Bestial Ones

Fiadh, a young, discontented single mother spends her days working as a home care nurse and her nights amongst the grit and grime of Dublin’s DIY punk scene. She shares a flat with her father Danny and troubled son Maithi, who is having difficulty both in and out of school. Maithi was born when Fiadh was a teenager, and as the two grew up together they also grew apart. This friction has caused Fiadh to feel restless, believing life would be better if she had her independence. When an old acquaintance returns to town, a passionate encounter presents an opportunity for escape, forcing Fiadh to choose between her child or the chance to leave everything behind and start over.
