As dawn breaks over a remote lakeside in the West of Ireland, a car comes to a halt and a man all in black exits. He opens the boot (trunk) and we find there a terrified, barefoot woman. As he leads her to the edge of the lake they start to argue and we discover that they have been there before as children. We learn that under his harsh rules she has committed a crime worthy of execution, but she defends herself, her humanity, and challenges his fanaticism. As the missed chances of their past come to light we watch to see if she can convince him to let her go. With haunting original music by Academy Award Winner Markéta Irglová. THE LONG WET GRASS, a short film starring Anna and Paul Nugent, directed by Justin Davey with DP Lakshika Serasinhe, based on The McGowan Trilogy by Séamus Scanlon.
