Synopsis: 'Coolatully shines a light on modern rural Ireland, where suicide rates among young men are the fourth highest in the world, asking whether a generation can be saved. Kilian was once Coolatully's pride and joy and their champion on the hurling field. Now the village can't muster a team, the country's shutting down, and his girlfriend Eilish wants to leave for a new life across the ocean. As Irish history repeats itself, Kilian must confront the demons of the past and decide whether to stay or go forever.'
