Spent

Directed by Claire Byrne Written by Emma Wall Staring Lydia McGuinness Paul Roe Luan Geary

Claire Hurst’s son has been missing for a year.

Exhausted by grief, Claire lives each day as if her son were there. But with each day passing, support grows quieter and articles disappear from the media. Claire begins to realise that the love she has for her son might not be enough to bring him home.

Claire takes solace in Tony, a private investigator working on her son’s case. As time passes, even Tony must deliver news that shatters Claire’s world.

SPENT tells the tragic story of a woman living in a perpetual state of grief and a mother’s refusal to give up on her child.
