  • Synopsis

    SPECTRES centres around the story of two men as they arrive at a halfway house in the west of Ireland - their last stop before they embark for America. As they wait out their last hours with the religious inn keeper, the men are visited by a young girl from their past. Lily is seeking retribution and the dead are possessive. As the building sinks from the ground up, so too do the men become submerged in the secrets of their past.
