The time is 2nd century rural Ireland and cattle is king. It’s a magical time with shape changing animals and gods in human form. It is a time when Rome, druids and seers are fighting over the path of Irish people. One woman appears who rebels against the restrictions of her society. Aiming for gender and sexual freedom, she gives us a legend that lives until today, a legend of fear conquering evil, magic battling religion, a legend passed down person to person over centuries to us today.
