Na Cloigne (The Heads)

Director: Robert Quinn
Producer: Ciarán Ó Cofaigh

Na Cloigne (The Heads) is a supernatural thriller, which tells the story of a young couple, Seán and Nuala, who become caught up in the horrible and gruesome murders of two young women.

Nuala is a gifted painter whose artistic abilities subconsciously attune her to the Otherworld.  Her relationship with Seán is buckling under pressure due to his recent infidelity with a local woman, Áine.

One drunken night Seán brings two attractive young women home for a nightcap after the pub. Nuala is awakened by their revelry and, after a raging row, drives off into the night in a state of jealous fury.  Seán wakes up the following morning with his clothes soaked in blood and no recollection of what happened the night before.  

Haunted by visions of dark men and unaware of who is dead and how he is involved, Seán slowly descends into the lowest levels of despair and madness.
