“There are magical beings who grant your every wish. But I didn’t meet one of those. I met the other type. The scarier sort. The magical beings who would eat you for breakfast. I know. They tried to eat me. And that’s not a word of a lie . . . ”

The Otherworld crashes into ordinary life in this visually inventive tale, as Caitríona Ní Mhurchú builds live images with micro-cameras to Niall Toner Jr’s specially commissioned soundtrack. Drawing on the ancient myths of Tuatha Dé Dannan and their mortal enemies - The Formorians.

Tá sióga ann a tugann pé ní atá uait duit. Ach níor bhuail mé leis na sióga úd. Bhuail mé leis an gcineál eile. An cineál scanrúil. Bhuail mise le neacha draíochta a d’íosfadh don bhricfeasta tú. Is fíor. Dhéanadar iarracht mise a ithe. Agus ní focal do bhréag é sin.
