The world burns. Somewhere, a group of teenagers has a party.
A group of teenagers begin what seems like another ordinary weekend in the suburbs of Dublin. It soon takes on much greater significance as their interpersonal and inner conflicts come to a head while they are trapped at a house party in the midst of a violent storm, as flooding hits the city. With their own problems thrown into stark perspective in the face of real danger and the very real effects of our fast-changing climate, these young people are brought to question their place in the world and their part in its future.
Piece is at its heart a teen drama that explores the difficult psychological terrain of confidence, self-belief and the general struggle to make sense of the emotions that go with being a teenager. At the same time, it is a film about the huge problems we face as a global society, as the price of our lifestyle begins to catch up with us. By combining an involving character narrative with disaster elements that address current environmental and societal issues, we aim to make a film that is both engaging and exciting as well as thoughtful and moving.
