In 13th century Ireland, a group of Catholic monks are forced, by order of Rome, to help transport their most sacred relic back to Italy. Their journey through a brutal and stark landscape filled with warring clans is punctuated by betrayal and murder. Only the silent stranger (Jon Bernthal from Marvel’s Daredevil) who washed onto their shores years before, is able to help the monks. A bloody and visceral examination of faith and fear, beautifully shot by Brendan Muldowney (who made cult film Love Eternal) and with a cast including Tom Holland, the new Spider-Man.
