 - 2022

When troubled West Cork teen Kevin Coyle (Ollie West) is involved in a tragic accident, he does something seemingly unforgivable; he keeps it a secret. Kevin must watch in horror as the consequences of his lie unfold before his eyes. Will he be forced to confront the truth as events inevitably escalate out of his control?
