For years, Thomas Reid, a Co. Kildare farmer, has been locked in a gruelling battle with his neighbour, U.S. microchip manufacturer, Intel, who want to expand into Reid’s land. A lyrical and unconventional approach brings an added layer of interest to this ’David and Goliath’ tale of an eccentric Irish farmer who takes on the might of an American computing corporation in a battle through the courts. Feargal Ward’s handsome documentary explores the clash between tradition and progress; between the rights of the individual and the perceived good of society.
