Director Patrick Wang makes a welcome return to the Fleadh following the success of previous features In the Family and The Grief of Others.
Forty years ago, Dorothea and Greta transformed an abandoned bread factory in the sleepy town of Checkford, transforming it into a vibrant arts space. It quickly became the heart of their local community, showcasing theatre, dance, music and film. Suddenly their very existence is threatened as a big business celebrity couple move into town and construct an enormous competitive arts venue, sucking up funding and audiences almost overnight. Starring Tyne Daly (Spiderman: Homecoming, Judging Amy, Cagney & Lacey) and James Marsters (Buffy, the Vampire Slayer).
