An Irish mediator of divided societies struggles with his inner demons.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Padraig O’Malley is legendary among the international human rights community for being a negotiator in crisis zones from Northern Ireland to Kosovo to Iraq. He funds his efforts as the co-owner of a bar in Cambridge MA – but he also struggles with addictions to alcohol and work. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life as he strives to find salvation in conflict zones, his personal relationships, and within himself.
