Synopsis

On a small secluded beach on the rural Irish coast, the Cove, a rocky and dangerous place, is a favourite refuge for seventeen year-old MARTIN and his brother TIM; twenty-eight.  On the day the story takes place Martin and his friend CARL have gone to the beach to surf, but Martin has invited BRENDAN, who has never been asked along before.

When Tim arrives a little later, Martin and Carl are on the beach crouching over Brendan’s dead body.  In the argument and confusion that follows Tim devises a plan to move the body so it isn’t found at the Cove, fearing that the truth would cause the authorities to close their beloved beach.

During the frantic exchanges that follow, the lads are suddenly surprised;  the  village drunk, affectionately nicknamed THE CAPTAIN, uses the Cove as a short cut to the pub and has happened upon the scene.  The lads try to pawn off their situation, claiming Brendan to be simply passed out from drink, but The Captain senses something is amiss and probes until he discovers the shocking truth.  Tim is quick to remind him of his illegal fishing nets and pots in the Cove and of the trouble the authorities would bring if they are notified.  With this The Captain is cajoled into the drama as an accomplice.

In the desperate hours that follow, all four are thrown into conflict and recrimination resulting in shifting loyalties.  Revelations of buried secrets and previous cover-ups force each one of them to face their own past and their present crisis, bringing the story to its inescapable conclusion.
