Is dlúth-phortráid í Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill - Taibhsí i mBéal na Gaoithe den bhfile seo a bhfuil a saothar go mór chun tosaigh in éireann. Fiosraíonn an scannán seo scéal a beatha agus na mórthéamaí ina cuid dánta. Trí agallaimh macánta faighimid sár-léargas ar an mbean seo, ar a scéal príobháideach agus ar conas nár scríobh sí ar feadh sé bhliana agus í ag strachaint lena cruthaitheacht agus lena meabhair.

Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill - Taibhsí i mBéal na Gaoithe is an intimate portrait of one of Ireland's leading poets. Through intimate interviews, the programme builds up a strong and compelling sense of the woman behind the work, illustrating for the viewer a rare insight into this very private story and looks at how she ceased writing for six years as she struggled with her creativity and her own mental well-being.

Critical Comments:
“A mesmeric film and a fantastic testament to the power of Ní Dhomhnaill's imagery... this is a programme that will live on in the mind.” Hilary Fannin, The Irish Times
