A man struggles to defeat his own demons, discovering the infinite loneliness of addiction. Drama.
What appears to be an ordinary journey to the bog to cut turf becomes an unusual and frightening encounter with a man's fondness for "the drink"; the recurring battle of will. It is set in the lonely, desolate, quiet high boglands in 1950s Ireland; boglands that are known in Irish folklore as places of danger that can swallow up the unwitting.
The sole, lead character is played by John Morley, who delivers a fantastically convincing performance, highlighting the chilling external, as well as internal, forces he struggles to deal with.
We will announce when "The Breaking" will begin to be submitted to festivals within a week.
