Having left years previously after the death of her mother, the relationship between father and daughter is strained. During her stay, Aoife begins to reconnect with her home and old friends, getting involved again in Naomhogor currach racing. Eventually, she agrees to join the local team and strive to win the regional finals for their village, a feat not achieved in 22 years.

As Aoife's past and present collide, she is pushed to her limits by the demanding training regimen, forcing her to confront her unresolved grief and her issues with her father.

‘’The combination of female solidarity for these ‘sisters of the sea’ and a sharp focus on festering family injuries... see this feelgood feature sail over the waves of predictability for a sweet landing on solid home ground.’’-Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International

In it, you will see not just the despair, but also the absurdity of the whole situation, the sheer horror of the foolishness of the thirst for power, as well as the never-ending hope that there is still a chance for good in this seemingly hopeless world.
