email Deborah@premierpr.netScéal faoi dream cairde a chuaigh ar imirce go Sasana go mall sna seachtóidí, ag geallúint go dtiocfaidís abhaile go hÉirinn saibhir agus rathúil. Anois, cúig bhliana is scór ar aghaidh, níl ach duine amháin acu ag filleadh: Jackie. Fuaradh a chorp ar bhóthar iarainn, bascaithe ag traein. Nuair gur gá dá chairde glacadh leis gur féidir gur féinmharú a bhí ann agus ní timpiste, caithfidh siad deileáil leis an bhfírinne shearbh.

The story of a group of friends who emigrated to England in the late 70's promising to return to Ireland rich and successful. Now 25 years on, only one of them is going home, Jackie - his body was found on the railway, crushed by a passing train. It is when his friends are forced to confront the possibility it was no accident, but suicide, that they must face up to the bitter chill of truth.

Tom Collins's long-awaited tender film is a beautifully shot depiction of the isolation felt by long-term migrants who struggle to find a place to call home. KINGS is a story of a lost generation, rich in humanity and emotion, and with a heart-breaking resonance not just for the Irish, in today's changing world.
