Joe and Kate Ruttledge have returned from London to live and work among the small, close-knit community near to where Joe grew up.

Now deeply embedded in life around the lake, the drama of a year in their lives and those of the memorable characters around them unfolds through the rituals of work, play and the passing seasons as this enclosed world becomes an everywhere.

Based on internationally acclaimed Irish author John McGahern's award winning novel of the same name.

'The provincial life, told in delicate movements in a script by Collins and Eamon Little, asks big questions about the nature of happiness' - Tara Brady, Irish Times
