The Silver Branch is a philosophical exploration of the life of farmer/poet Patrick McCormack, descendant of generations of farmers who have lived off the wild landscape of the Burren.
We are immersed in the exquisite texture of the natural world, bringing us a rare glimpse of a disappearing way of life with all its richness and roguery, and leading to a deep connection with the Earth and our ancestral wild spirit.
Patrick and his rural community are drawn into a divisive battle with the Government, leading them to the Supreme Court to decide on the fate of this iconic wilderness.
The Silver Branch is a story of hope that we as individuals can make a difference to our universe.
