A poetic mediation over certain subjects in life, peace of mind, serenity, sustainability, and loss. The film was shot in County Kerry in Ireland, and has at its centre language, landscape and light. Monsignor Padráig Ó’Fiannachta, a distinguished linguist, scholar and poet, acts as our guide. Both the English and Irish language play a prominent role in the narrative, as well as occasional quotations from Latin and Greek epic poems. The central question of the film circles around the age old philosophical question ‘what is the good life?. The film takes inspiration from Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical on the environment ‘Laudato si’ Considering what is 'wealth’ and where can this be found? Proposing that ‘wealth’ ultimately emanates from peace of mind, sustained through a deeper connection with nature.
