Synopsis

The Seed examines the heredity of war, secrets and lies throughout three generations of one family. After the horrific loss of her child, Rose Maloney travels with her Vietnam Veteran father Danny to visit his IRA father Brian. What should be a time of familial healing instead becomes a game of cat and mouse, as Rose discovers that her recent trauma is in fact part of a much bigger, insidious jigsaw that will see Rose battle with her very own blood. Based on the real-life story of actor and writer Kate Mulvany, The Seed explores the devastating political and psychological effect of one lie from generation to generation, and how knowing the truth, no matter how painful, is the right of everyone.
