Angels Guard Thee

Martin has been living a solitary life as a farmer in the midlands of Ireland for almost three decades. He came to the town from Belfast in the late eighties under mysterious circumstances and while he has managed to build a small network of friends, he has yet to feel fully embraced by the local community. His simple existence is interrupted by the arrival of Seamus, an old friend from the north one winter evening. Seamus claims the reason for his visit is the anniversary of a close friend of theirs who died thirty years earlier. Over the course of the weekend, the two men reconnect and reminisce about old times and lost loves, but as time goes on it becomes clear that there is a more sinister reason for Seamus’ visit.
