Synopsis: An evocative mood piece, THE FRUITFUL glides gently from classic Georgian townscapes to the lush emerald landscapes of rural Ireland, reflecting one young lady inner turmoil as she struggles for restitution in the shadows of her recent past.
Written and Directed by John Collins, THE FRUITFUL tests convention in a stunning blend of imagery and poetry, while narration is from NÃirÃ.
