In the village of Mountdonn, in the far west of Ireland, remote and windswept from the full force of the Atlantic ocean, you cannot escape the stories of the past, stories that draw many tourists fascinated by the folklore and the often mist-laden ...
and haunting atmosphere. Today, the Abbey of the Sisters of the Stigmata, located at the base of the mountains and founded at the time of the Great Irish Famine in 1845, is threatened with impending closure and demolition. Groups and individuals who stand to gain from the land, fight against each other to gain ultimate possession from the four remaining Sisters in the Abbey. This is a story, not only of man's greed and penchant for power and wealth, it's also the story of a small family's journey towards finding love; a village struggling to protect itself from unscrupulous business people and politicians and a religious Order determined to preserve its cultural and spiritual heritage.
