The Beekeeper's Son

  • 10'
  • Ireland

A young boy steals away from a wake and wanders into the countryside. He comes across a solitary middle-aged mourner sitting in front of a lone beehive. The man seems eager to talk about things he thought he had forgotten. A quiet meditation on loss, regeneration and the cyclical nature of tradition.
