'Mad' Mary McArdle returns to Drogheda after a short spell in prison - for something she'd rather forget. Back home, everything and everyone has changed. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is to be her maid of honour. When Charlene refuses Mary a 'plus one' on the grounds that she probably couldn't find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong.

Johnny Saxby works long hours in brutal isolation on his family's remote farm in the north of England.

An intense relationship forms between the two which could change Johnny's life forever.

Director Toa Fraser (The Dead Lands, Giselle) follows world champion freestyle skier Jossi Wells on his quest to understand what it really means to be free.


Tested to his limits and pushing his body further than ever before, Wells is the vehicle for Fraser's intense philosophical meditation on extreme-sports people, risk, life, death and flying.


In Fraser's typical genre-defying style, THE FREE MAN is part extreme-sports documentary, part mountain-adventure and part psychological and spiritual exploration.


Framed as a search for the elusive meaning of freedom, the film explores questions like: what is fear? Is it with fear as our soulmate that we find freedom?






September TBC
