Synopsis

Irish farmer Thomas Reid lives a solitary life on the fringes of mainstream society. But beyond the walls of his 18th century farm looms a vast American factory owned the giant US microchip manufacturer Intel - and now they want his land. When government agents seek to forcibly purchase his home in the name of pro-business economic progress, he vows to resist. Set against the backdrop of the landmark Supreme Court legal action and featuring unique reenactments of the courtroom by Thomas himself, THE LONELY BATTLE OF THOMAS REID harnesses the immersive power of cinema in an epic David-and-Goliath tale of one man's fight for his ancestral home.
