Alienated from urban existence and those who love him, land surveyor Eric travels to a remote and unnamed Irish woodland to assess its suitability for a dubious development project. The place seems to be imbued by an intelligence of sorts. A silhouette flits between trees. The place fascinates the fragmenting Eric as much as it disturbs him. Following in the psychonautic footsteps of the mysterious Devoy, Eric attempts to communicate with his surroundings, but risks becoming a prisoner of a place Without Name.

The directorial debut of Lorcan Finnegan is a solid psychological horror film, a must watch for those tired of the usual tropes of jump scares and gore. The film won the Best Film and Best Director Award in Brooklyn Horror Film Festival.

The film will be screened with english subtitles, also.
