Tory Island, nine miles off the coast of Donegal is the most remote inhabited island off Ireland.  Its notorious inaccessibility and unforgiving landscape has not deterred 150 people from making this island their home. Óílean Thoraí captures, over the course of eighteen months, the changing patterns of life on Tory.  It’s an intimate portrayal, exploring the lives of the islanders, their character and community.
