The complexities of a father/son relationship are explored in this documentary from Irish director Donal Foreman (Out of Here). In it, Foreman grapples with the legacy of his estranged father, the late documentarian Arthur MacCaig, who gathered detailed archives during The Troubles in Northern Ireland, and contributions from others on their different experiences of nationalism.  Using over three decades of unseen footage, the film weaves a history of The North with the story of a son’s search to better know and understand his complicated father.

A superb but shattering family history, a father and son - separated by circumstances but united by their mutual love of filmmaking.
