Film maker Neasa Ní Chianáin began this project as a portrait of Cathal ' Searcaigh, an influential and openly gay poet well-known in his native Ireland. At nearly fifty, he recently found his spiritual home not in rural Northwest Ireland where he grew up, but rather in Nepal. This feeding of the soul fascinated Ní Chianáin.
