Another Painful Irish Family History
KNOCKNAHAY, IRELAND-- Shannon, an Irish-American textile artist of dubious talent, arrives in Ireland, trapped in a fruitless mindset for self-improvement and positive thinking. She arrives at an Irish arts residency to meet her cousin Brigit, a Druidic healer and unpublished poet for an artistic collaboration. Their poetry quilt project starts at the fairy fort. It is meant to celebrate their shared DNA and rekindle any of Shannon's latent Celtic fire. Their arts residency, a creative paradise, is buzzing with egocentric and renown artists, writers, poets, celebrities, and staff from Ireland, Germany, Russia, England, and France. The big house is in dire need of repairs and the director is desperate for funding. When a thwarted heiress arrives with offers of corporate sponsorship and a world-class exhibition-- in exchange for the residents' recorded audio diaries detailing artistic creative processes, Shannon makes some unwise choices.
