Musician Davy Spillane stars as a reluctantly-married young traveller in this Irish road movie written by Neil Jordan. Michael and his wife Angela are tasked with smuggling goods back over the border from Strabane, but their road trip seems doomed at every turn - weighed down by history and poverty. The wild landscape is beautifully shot by Thaddeus O'Sullivan, while the use of folk songs lends a lyrical tone.
