Ryan is brimming with optimism to own his own sheep farm in anticipation of his release from a Northern Irish prison.

Filmed on two sides of the prison walls, the film contemplates whether Ryan’s path is destined by the weight of his community and family history, or if it is within his power to break the cycle.
