Synopsis

Tomás, a busy Irish-language TV producer, is a private man, who likes to keep things quiet and ordered. He takes his wife Siobhan and their beloved baby son Oisín to their secluded holiday home, on a north coast island, as frequently as he can. They don't go out, they don't interact with the locals – he just wants to enjoy the peace. And he does, until he receives an urgent call from work – he's needed back on the mainland. He knows he can't delegate – any time he leaves someone else to do his work, it goes wrong. He'll have to go himself and leave his family on the island.

Later that day Tomás returns to the island to find that his wife, their baby, and all trace of them gone. An investigation by the island's only police officer, the elderly Labhaoise, exposes that not all is as it seems. With a storm forecast for that night, they search the island only to discover something: his wife's abandoned car and a body on the beach. The body of a man.


Fear príobháideach é Tomás, léiritheoir teilifís Gaeilge gnóthach. Is maith leis rudaí a choimeád ciúin agus in ord. Tógann sé a bhean Siobhán agus a mbabaí gleoite, Oisín, chuig a dteach saoire scoite ar oileán ar an chósta thuaidh, chomh minic agus is féidir. Ní théann siad amach, ní labhraíonn siad leis na hoileánaigh - níl ach suaimhneas na háite ag teastáil ó Thomás. Baineann sé sult as, go dtí go dtagann glao prainneach oibre - tá air filleadh ar an mhórthír. Ní thig leis brath ar dhuine ar bith eile - má fhágann sé a chúraimí ag duine eile, ní dhéanfar mar is ceart é. Ní mór dó féin imeacht, agus a theaghlach a fhágáil ar an oileán.


Níos déanaí sa lá céanna, filleann sé ar an oileán le fáil amach go bhfuil a bhean agus a mhac imithe - gan dé ná deatach orthu. Tugtar faoi fhiosrúchán, leis an t-aon gharda amháin ar an oileán, seanbhean darbh ainm Labhaoise. Ach ní mar a shíltear a bhítear. Le doineann ar an bhealach, déanann siad an t-oileán a chuardach, agus tagann siad ar rud: gluaisteán tréigthe a mhná, agus corpán ar an trá. Corpán fir.
