Set on a construction site in Baile Gall in the west of Ireland, The Blowin' of Baile Gall "centers on four workers struggling to build their futures in a changing world. When the general contractor returns from America and hires an African refugee instead of a local, generations of grudges, boiling just below the surface, are unearthed."
