Leenane, County Galway, 1990.

In a remote cottage in the mountains of Connemara, 40 year old Maureen Folan lives with her manipulative and possessive mother, Mag.

Trapped together in a poisonous cycle of daily battles and with endless rain driving at the walls, Maureen dreams of escape. When a chance for happiness arrives in the form of unexpected suitor Pato Dooley, she dares to hope…

But Mag has other ideas and sets in motion a chain of events that build to a terrifying climax…

Hauntingly beautiful and blisteringly funny, this dark comedy thriller from the writer of the Golden Globe and Oscar winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and In Bruges is guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.
