The Passion tells the story of a young man who accidentally kills the love of his life in a car crash, and seeks resolution and escape with her mother. This psychologically complex yet subtle story brings us into post-recession rural Ireland. A community has turned its back on who they believe is a perpetrator rather than a victim. Steven has done time for the incident, and can’t find a way to reconcile himself to his new life. He turns to his dead girlfriend’s mother for solace, and a strange relationship unfolds.
