About the Film
The Shore follows two boyhood best friends reuniting after 25-years of division. One of them was shot during the Northern Irish conflict and the ensuing misunderstanding drove them apart. 25 years later, returning from America, one tracks down his friend with an overwhelming sense of remorse.
