The Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland border allows an exploration into the concept of identity and community, and local opinions on the role of the border in uncertain times.
The border between the Republic of Ireland and the UK runs in the middle of a beautiful glacial fjord. The Carlingford Ferry crosses the Carlingford Lough on a daily basis, bringing people from one side to the other. Here we meet characters from North and South, with different points of view, making the journey through the magnificent, green Irish landscape.
The film explores the concept of identity and community on an isle divided by not one, but 2 borders: a physical one between the UK and Ireland, and mental one between seemingly incompatible opinions on the role of the border. Opinions that might change when the personal surpasses the ideologic. Though the water on each side is deep, it has the unpredictable weather in common. But does the local expression ‘four seasons in one day’ only reflect on the weather?
