the road dance  in pre-production

     Windswept, dark and crumbling, the forlorn Irish fishing village of Dolphin Bay is the place that time and tourist guides forgot. Yet it’s about to find a new hope with the arrival of an American kid.
     Michael McLaughlin, age 16, a spoiled, sullen and selfish loner from Hollywood is unable to cope with family pressures of home or at the helm of his only passion; sport sailing. His future is lost to his own brooding anger which pushes all others away.
     Reluctantly, his grandmother and fading Broadway star, Holland McLaughlin, takes him back to visit her old home in Ireland to see her dying “first love”, a local fisherman Joseph Rose, whom she left heartbroken in her youth.
     Once there,  Holland will re-kindle past romance and Michael will set upon an adventure of personal discovery and danger on the high seas while exploring the deepening sadness that cloaks Dolphin Bay in despair.
     With each passing night another layer of the mystery in pulled back as Michael learns about the village’s mournful history and painful legacy. He also renews his energy and focus under the bleary eyed coaching of former Olympic sailing great, Sean O’Day, who has since fallen to the cursed wayside of loss…and who’s also drowning in dark secrets of his own.
     Along with the colorful flavor of the locals, crazed relatives, ghostly wolf hounds, and the rich, hauntingly beautiful music of the Emerald Isle, Michael finds a soul mate in Sean’s daughter, Kate, 17, a gypsy witch. Together they share  the story of  pain, growth and what it means to follow the true Irish ways of life.
     Ultimately, with death lufting in the sails, Michael must prove if he can rise to overcome his hurtful ways or make victims of all he has now come to care for.

     A father wants only the best for his son, but struggles to guide him in a world that’s changing as fast as the boy himself.A son blessed with talent, fuelled by ambition, chafes at his father’s commands as he hurtles toward adulthood with all the moxie of untarnished youth. In every generation, a torch passes from father to son. And that timeless dynamic is the beating heart of TOMMY’S HONOUR – an intimate, powerfully moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.Set in St. Andrews, Scotland during the hidebound Victorian era, the story opens in 1866 as 15-year-old TOMMY MORRIS (Jack Lowden) heads to the links with his father, TOM MORRIS (Peter Mullan). Already a legend, “Old Tom” is greens-keeper for the
Royal & Ancient golf club, where he established the standard of 18 holes per round; as well as the town’s club- and ball-maker; and thrice winner of the first major golf tournament, the Open Championship – which he founded in 1860.
     Tom Morris has secured his place in the history of the ancient game. But Tommy will soon outshine him, retiring the Open’s prize Championship Belt while still in his teens (by winning it three times in a row), and, as the “dashing young man of golf,” drawing flocks of spectators to the sport and becoming its first
​touring pro.
      Despite their shared passion, father and son repeatedly clash over the unwritten rules of social class, culminating in Tommy’s marriage to a woman of lower standing with a shameful secret in her past. Tommy’s beloved wife MEG (Ophelia Lovibond) figures in this true story’s climax, as Tom makes a fatal misjudgement that strips Tommy of everything he holds dear. From the ashes of that fateful choice, Old Tom rises to a mission that carries him through the final decades of his life: Honouring Tommy.
