This film follows 12 years in the lives of 3 Irish traveller families and their bitter feuds and fights. The film explores the reasons why they hold these fights and explores the in-depth secret lives of the families, which is barely known to outsiders of the travelling community. A gripping tale of passion and respect and blood bonds that will never end. So much of the fighting we’re used to seeing on the big screen is more violent and bloody than this, but when it’s staged for the cameras, it’s somehow easier to watch. But seeing grown men, trying to punch each other’s lights out in a cold, wet, country lane, under the watchful eyes of a handful of neutral observers, is altogether different. Noses are really getting broken. Blood is really dripping from their wounds.
