Edward is an elderly bog railway worker, in love with the myth and literature of the bog. Shauna, a bright, tough and stubborn young woman starts work as his new Prison Release Apprentice. Working on the narrow gauge railways that traverse the expansive, historic bogs of Ireland, trying to traverse the rough terrain of such an unlikely friendship, both Shauna and Edward begin to realise that to find a future, they must get over their respective pasts.
