  • Synopsis

    It's the year 2084 in a world where 'The Empire' reigns supreme. Most European languages are forbidden. We're introduced to the menacing wilderness that was once Belfast. Makaronik, the last woman standing, has been instructed by 'The Centre' to wrap up her archive and send back all remnants of the Irish language for 'storage'. Diarmuid and Gráinne, two high level officials, arrive to ensure that all goes smoothly and that Makaronik comes back with them ... but will it all go as smoothly as planned?
